TO ALL UFU MEMBERS

HAVE A SAY IN YOUR FUTURE EMPLOYER ON THE 29TH OF NOVEMBER

It’s a rare opportunity that employees within an industry are afforded the chance to help determine who their future employer is and indeed have input into the future of the industry that they work in.

As firefighters and support staff you have the opportunity to stop the current Napthine liberal governments attack on the fire service.

On the 29th of November you can help change this and stop any future attacks on your employment conditions and community safety.

By allocating a small proportion of time you can highlight the damage that the Napthine government has had on the fire service and community safety/protection and ensure they are not re-elected to office.

The UFU has been involved in a strategic analysis as to where our members can make the most difference by informing the voting public of the damage by the Napthine government to the firefighting industry and its employees.

We have had a good response from members however we need more people to commit to at three or four hour shift in the following electorates:

Carrum

Mordialloc

Buninyong

Bentleigh

Along with nurses, teachers and paramedics, firefighters and support staff will be deployed to marginal seats on the 29th of November for the state election to inform the public of the damage the Napthine government has done to community protection.

There will be three shifts available for members to choose from: 8am-12pm, 12-3pm and 3-6pm

With the election less than a month away we need to make sure that all available members RSVP so we can put them into the booth roster and ensure that the Napthine Government does not get a second term in office.

If you have not already advised your shop steward or Station Point of contact of your attendance please email Dan at org2@ufuvic.asn.au or SMS to 0419 127 045 with your preferred electorate and shift time.

A small portion of your time is an investment in protecting your employment so please does not leave this up to your colleagues.

Strength in Unity
