CHANGES TO PETTY CASH IN DISPUTE
The UFU has notified a dispute to the MFB on its decision to unilaterally change its long-standing Petty Cash reimbursement arrangements.
The new procedure requires all sundry purchases to be submitted through the staffing action form and paid via the payroll system.
Currently employees are reimbursed for out of pocket expenses such as meal allowance, mileage, travelling and incidentals via petty cash.
The UFU is concerned that these changes to the Petty Cash reimbursement arrangements are unnecessarily bureaucratic and will delay payment.
The MFB has not consulted the UFU on the changes nor has the impact of the changes been discussed.
Following no response from the MFB to date, the UFU has escalated the dispute to Step 2 of the Dispute Resolution procedures set out in the MFB Corporate and Technical Employees Agreement 2013.
If members have any queries, please contact your local Delegate or Rini Krouskos at the UFU on
0400 441 616 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
