IMPORTANT NOTICE

TO ALL UFU MFB MEMBERS

UFU MEMBERS ENCOURAGED

TO ATTEND HEARING OF THE TERMINATE OPERATIONAL AGREEMENTS

UFU Members are reminded to take the opportunity to hear the MFB evidence’s by attending the Fair Work Commission hearing into the MFB’s application to terminate the operational staff and ACFO agreements.

As previously notified, the case has been set down for 20 days to be heard at the Fair Work Commission.   Below is the list of hearing dates and the platoon on Day Shift.  Therefore anyone not on day shift should be able to attend as often as possible.

It is important that Members attend to hear firsthand the evidence of the MFB in its application to abolish the MFB UFU Operational Staff Agreement 2010 and the MFB UFU ACFO Agreement 2010.

This is the most significant of attacks MFB firefighters are facing.

A large number of MFB firefighters are providing witness statements opposing the application and clearly putting their views including the significant detrimental impact if their terms and conditions of employment were to be wiped out.  

The hearing will be held at the Fair Work Commission, 11 Exhibition Street, every week day from Monday 7 July 2014 to Friday 1 August 2014.  

Below is a list of each hearing day and the shift on day duty.  

Anyone not on duty on the hearing days are strongly encouraged to attend the Fair Work Commission whenever they can.

To assist,  the UFU is collating a roster.  Please ring Rini 0400 441 616 or email io3@ufuvic.asn.au to be included in the roster.
