Bulletin No: 002 | 8 January 2019
To: ALL UFU MEMBERS
Members contacted by the public in relation to recent bushfires
Further to the text message sent to all members this morning, the UFU has been advised that stations have also recently received calls by members of the public asking to make a donation to that particular station.
The UFU respectfully advises members of the following:
- If you are contacted by a member of the public or an activist organisation seeking comment in relation to the current bushfires, do not make comment and notify the Union Office of this contact.
- If you are contacted by a member of the public or an organisation seeking to make a donation to your station, you may advise them that the Victorian State Government has created a Victorian Bushfire Appeal which can be accessed online at https://www.vic.gov.au/bushfireappeal. 100% of donated funds will go directly to communities in need.
Should members have any questions or concerns, please contact your Branch Secretary on 0419 127 004.
