MERRY CHRISTMAS:

CORPORATE AND TECHNICAL STAFF ENTERPRISE AGREEMENT TO OPERATE FROM 25 DECEMBER  

Members are advised that this morning the Corporate and Technical Staff Agreement was approved by the Fair Work Commission. The agreement will operate from 25 December 2013.

The agreement contains significant new conditions and wages which could not have been achieved without member’s solidarity and determination.

Members are congratulated on your strength and conviction during a very difficult period. It is this level of commitment that has achieved fair and reasonable conditions of employment for all Corporate and Technical Staff.

This is your agreement and members should feel proud of what you have achieved.

The UFU understands that the MFB is intending to provide backpay promptly and the UFU will keep members informed should any issues arise in relation to this matter.

The UFU will hold meetings in the new year to debrief on this outcome, but in the interim members are encouraged to rest and enjoy the festive season and the resolution of your agreement after what has been a long and difficult campaign, but one which has ultimately been very successful.

If members are seeking a copy of the agreement as issued from the Fair Work Commission, or have any queries please contact the UFU office on 9419 8811 or ufuvic@ufuvic.asn.au, or your workplace delegate.

In addition, all protected industrial action should not continue.

Strength in Unity
