FORMATION OF UFU BUILDING DEVELOPMENT SUB COMMITTEE

The Branch Committee of Management have resolved to formulate a UFU Building Development Sub-Committee.

As members would be aware the UFU building is 143 years old and is long overdue for redevelopment as the office space has become unworkable and their conditions of employment are ones that we would not tolerate for our members.

This matter was raised at the recent Delegate Training Workshop and discussed at length where a number of delegates indicated that prior to their employment as Firefighters they had experience as a registered builder or trades person in the building industry.

We have already received expressions of interest from a number of delegates willing to be part of a committee that oversees the design development of the UFU building project. If you have experience as a registered builder and or a qualified tradesperson within the building industry and would like to participate in the Building Development Sub Committee please contact the UFU office.

Please note that the purpose of the Building Development Sub Committee is one of monitoring and providing advice, it is not to be involved in the actual construction but to assist in overseeing the successful applicant or tenderer.

Strength in Unity
