DISPUTE NOTIFIED REGARDING MFB PROPOSAL FOR A “SCENARIO AVAIABILITY” ROSTER – STATUS QUO APPLIES I.E. SCENARIO AVAILABILITY ROSTER NOT TO BE IMPLEMENTED
Members are advised that the UFU has lodged a dispute with the MFB under both the Operational Staff Agreement and the ACFO Agreement in relation to the MFB’s proposal to implement a “scenario availability” roster to Commanders and ACFO’s.
The MFB has not consulted with the UFU regarding this matter and we are extremely concerned about the lack of clarity regarding employee entitlements and potential fatigue management as well as firefighter welfare issues.
With the dispute in place status quo applies. We will keep members updated as the matter progresses. In the meantime should members have any queries please contact UFU Industrial Officer Rini Krouskos on 0400 441 616.
