CFA PTA BARGAINING UPDATE

The UFU have sent several requests to the CFA to request that a preliminary meeting take place to discuss negotiations for a replacement agreement to cover CFA PTA employees.

The first of these requests was sent several months ago.

Despite agreeing to the meeting, CFA have so far been unwilling to agree to a date and time to enable it to actually take place.

If a time and date cannot be agreed in the near future, the UFU will consider what means are at its disposal to enable the bargaining process to commence.

The UFU are aware that the CFA do not currently have approval from government for their bargaining position.

We intend to use the forthcoming meeting to put in place a timetable and process for bargaining including fixed dates by which claims must be exchanged and regular meetings will occur.

If you have any queries, please contact Jeremy Murphy at the UFU officer on 9419 8811 or at io4@ufuvic.asn.au.
