Bulletin No: 260 Volume: 21 Monday 21 December 2015
To ALL MFB & CFA OPERATIONAL MEMBERS
INCREASE TO ALL ALLOWANCES & APPLICATION FOR NEW ALLOWANCES TO BE DECIDED BY FWC
The UFU have lodged disputes with the CFA and MFB to increase all allowances payable under the CFA and MFB operational staff agreements by 7.8 percent. If the increases are not agreed to by the CFA and MFB, they will be decided by the Fair Work Commission.
The increases are possible due to clauses in both agreements which allow for the Fair Work Commission to decide increases to allowances or to provide for new allowances under the current agreement.
The UFU will also be seeking the introduction of several new allowances including a 35 dollar per week allowance for interoperability.
Members will be advised of the progress of disputes as they progress, which will likely include arbitration at the Fair Work Commission
