INCREASED SERVICE TO UFU MEMBERS:

UFU WELFARE OFFICER 

The UFU is implementing an internal, expanded welfare service for current and retired members, using an extremely highly qualified person whose integrity is beyond reproach. We encourage all members to use this new welfare service.

Ross Fusca has been appointed as the UFU’s Welfare Officer. He can provide assistance to members based on his wealth of expertise.

Ross comes to us with thirty years’ experience in law enforcement with the Australian Federal Police, attaining the substantive rank of Detective Sergeant. Within this role, he held the position of Welfare Officer (Victoria and Tasmania), encompassing portfolios including Return to Work Coordinator, Equal Opportunities Officer, Sexual Harassment Contact Officer, Aboriginal Liaison Officer and Regional Mediator.

Over this time, Ross successfully contributed to a safer and equitable workplace, with a number of his recommendations adopted by AFP management.

Ross will also have at his disposal the ability to refer UFU members to independent external services if required.

Ross can be contacted by members confidentially at: ufuwelfareofficer@gmail.com or 0477 884 456.
