A reminder to all members that the UFU will be holding a Special General Members Meeting on Tuesday 29 August to provide members with an update on the status of the fire services reform and a report from Secretary on behalf of the Branch Committee of Management.
As members would have heard, sadly yesterday ALP Victorian MP and Minister for the Prevention of Family Violence, Fiona Richardson passed away following a battle with cancer.
As per Bulletin #100 last week, the UFU has finally been advised by MFB that the in-principle agreement reached in bargaining for a new Corporate and Technical Employees agreement has been signed off by the Minister and has concluded the Government process.
The UFU advises members that we understand that the in-principle Corporate and Technical Employees Enterprise Agreement will be resolved through the Government process early next week following UFU intervention.
To: All UFU CORP AND TECH MEMBERS
ENTERPRISE AGREEMENT UPDATE
As members are aware it has now been some months since in principle agreement was reached with the MFB for a new MFB Corp and Tech Agreement however, Government and the MFB have still failed to progress the enterprise agreement to a vote of employees.
The UFU is extremely concerned at the inordinate amount of time that has passed since the in-principle agreement was reached. We have been following this matter up with the MFB regularly.
