CFA OPERATIONAL STAFF WAGE INCREASES WELCOMED
The Branch Committee of Management would like to thank the CFA Board, Minister for Emergency Services, James Merlino and the Andrews State Government for implementing pay increases for Operational Staff in line with the proposed Enterprise Agreement prior to it being put to a vote.
The CFA board has endorsed a 5% increase backdated to the 1st of May and a further 1.5% increase from the 1st of November with the increases being rolled out over the next three pay periods.
The UFU is pleased with this show of good faith as this long running bargaining process approaches its conclusion.
The CFA have stated that the access period will soon commence following which members will be able to vote on the proposed Agreement.
Additionally the Branch Committee of management would like to thank the entire membership for your unwavering solidarity and support in what has been a truly testing time for our Union.
We look forward to finalising this Agreement and moving forward with the positive initiatives it contains which will improve both firefighter and community safety in the years to come.
Strength in Unity
