MFB’S WITNESS STATEMENTS

MEMBERS AGAIN INVITED TO PROVIDE THEIR VIEWS TO THE COMMISSION

As members would be aware, the MFB has applied to the Fair Work Commission to terminate the entire MFB UFU Operational Staff Agreement 2010 as well as the entire MFB UFU Assistant Chief Fire Officer Agreement 2010.

The MFB have now filed witness statements in support of their applications to terminate the agreements.

These statements are available on the UFU website for members to considerMembers can access the statements by obtaining the username and password from their shop steward.

The MFB witness statements are from:

  • Peter Rau,
  • Paul Stacchino,
  • David Youssef,
  • John Jugum,
  • Darren Davies,
  • David Bruce,
  • Darren McQuade,
  • Greg Pearson,
  • Adam Dalrymple,
  • Andrew O’Connell,
  • Craig Lloyd,
  • Andrew Zammit,
  • Janette Pearce,
  • Michael Werle,
  • Margaret Wilson.

The Commission must take into account the views of the employees covered by the enterprise agreements.  Therefore it is important that those covered by the Agreements have an opportunity to read the MFB’s witness statements to fully understand the claims made by the MFB.

Members are asked to contact the UFU if they have views about the MFB application and the MFB witness statements that they want to be put before the Commission.

If the MFB is successful in their applications, the Agreements will no longer apply at all – the Commission can only terminate the Agreements in their entirety.

If there are any queries or comments regarding these statements, please contact the UFU office on 9419 8811.
