KNOCKING CAMPAIGN

The UFU, as part of the Napthine Slashes, You Burn campaign and in addition to other actions, is organising weekly upcoming doorknocking days in marginal and ultra marginal electorates and we need the participation of all members.

As experienced at the Carrum doorknock last month, Firefighters have tremendous power when it comes to campaign events such as doorknocking and have a real ability to effect change in this upcoming Victorian State election.

The Carrum doorknock illustrated this with the 3,500 signatures which we managed to get on our petition in an electorate which is only held by the liberal government by 125 votes.

Beginning this Sunday (4 May 2014) UFU Members are doorknocking in Wendouree, an electorate which is even more marginal then Carrum needing less than 40 votes in the upcoming election to take it from the Napthine Government and quite possibly change the government.

Members will be meeting at:

Ballarat Trades Hall,

24 Camp Street, Ballarat

11am.

All members are strongly encouraged to attend and participate in this doorknock as part of the broader campaign.

For members who wish to attend from metro areas there will be a bus departing from the UFU office traveling to Ballarat:

United Firefighters Union,

410 Brunswick Street, Fitzroy

9:30am

Members will be doorknocking in pairs and training will be provided on the day.

The UFU will also provide food and water and there will be a BBQ afterwards.

All members please RSVP attendance to Dan Hunt on 0419 127 045 or via email at org2@ufuvic.asn.au
