To ALL UFU MEMBERS
IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO UFU MEMBERS
Members should be aware that not all volunteers and their brigades support the action of the VFBV.
For example the union office has had a number of calls from captains of volunteer brigades categorically stating that they do not support the actions of the VFBV motorcade and they respect the right of CFA and MFB firefighters to bargain for better wages and conditions.
Additionally individual volunteers have also expressed the same sentiments as above.
In short many integrated fire stations in the CFA as does Fire Stations in the MFB have very strong relations of mutual respect with their volunteer colleagues and those relationships should not only be nurtured but strengthened by the example of solidarity and respect that has been shown for CFA and MFB bargaining by both by volunteer brigades and individual members.
Strength in Unity
