MFB OPERATIONAL STAFF WAGE INCREASES WELCOMED
The Branch Committee of Management would like to thank the MFB Board, Minister for Emergency Services, James Merlino and the Andrews State Government for implementing pay increases for Operational Staff in line with the proposed Enterprise Agreement prior to it being put to a vote.
The MFB board has endorsed a 5% increase backdated to the 1st of May and a further 1.5% increase from the 1st of November. The MFB have stated that the both increases and back pay will be payed in the pay week ending Thursday the 17th of November.
The UFU is pleased with this show of good faith as this long running bargaining process approaches its conclusion.
Additionally the Branch Committee of management would like to thank the entire membership for your unwavering solidarity and support in what has been a truly testing time for our Union.
We look forward to seeing the MFB Operational Staffing agreement finalised in the near future.
Strength in Unity
