JUDGEMENT DAY: FISKVILLE INQUIRY FINAL REPORT TO BE TABLED IN PARLIAMENT TOMORROW

The Final Report of the Parliamentary Inquiry into the CFA Training College at Fiskville will be tabled in Parliament tomorrow at 12:00. This is a vitally important document given the serious health and safety implications of contamination at Fiskville and the duty of care of the CFA to provide a safe workplace.

The inquiry into Fiskville has been underway since December 2014 and through the proceedings the UFU has made every effort to ensure that the actions of those responsible for knowingly putting firefighters and staff at risk are brought to light.

UFU members submitted around 450 individual witness statements to the body of evidence and many members have given evidence in person before the committee. The UFU would like to once again thank those members who contributed to the inquiry as well as all members who attending the hearings.

For members who wish to attend, the Government Press conference will be at Parliament from  1:00pm tomorrow  with the UFU press conference to follow at approximately 1:30pm.
