As members are aware, the UFU and its membership has always been proactive in pursuing initiatives to enhance diversity within the workforce.
We, the undersigned, support a trial of a Medically Supervised Injection Centre in Victoria.
Today marks the 8th anniversary of the 2009 Black Saturday bushfires. This disaster was the worst bushfire in Australian history, claiming the lives of 173 people, thousands of homes and devastating over 500,000 km2 of land.
FWC ISSUES BALLOT ORDER! MEMBERS ENCOURAGED TO VOTE!
Mass Membership Meeting 14 February
Following on from Bulletin #13, members are advised that despite objections from the MFB, FWC has now issued a ballot order for members to vote in regarding to further protected industrial action in support of your campaign for a fair EBA.
The UFU invites members and families to our annual family day picnic on Sunday the 19th of February at Moonee Valley Racecourse.
As you are aware the MFB and UFU have been bargaining for a new Enterprise Agreement for MFB Corp and Tech members since November 2015. As such, today the UFU has filed in FWC for a ballot for further protected industrial action.
All UFU members are invited to attend the annual UFU Family Day / Picnic which will this year be held on Sunday February 19th. Please place this date in your diaries as a day not to miss.
The family day will again be held at the Moonee Valley race course and will consist of rides for the kids, including giant slide, animal feeding, food, drinks, lollies and of course running races for the little and big kids.
Members are reminded that the UFU will be holding a rally of off-duty members on Thursday the 19th of January. Members are rallying to make it clear to the MFB, CFA and State Government that it is unacceptable that our agreements still have not been resolved after over three years of bargaining.
The rally will also address the state government’s failure to deliver pre-and post-election commitments.
UFU members/career professional firefighters deserve the same funding that volunteer firefighters and the VFBV receive from both the CFA and State Government.
Career professional firefighters should not be discriminated against because of their industrial activity and belonging to a Union.
