UFU Bulletin #196 16 DAYS OF ACTIVISM AGAINST VIOLENCE

The UFU and MFB are committed to this campaign because violence is an occupational hazard for firefighters and MFB employees, and rates of violence in the general community indicate that it’s likely that many people have also experienced violence in their personal lives.


UFU Bulletin #195 UFUA’s Joanne (Wattie) Watson to take up the position of Secretary of New Zealand Professional Firefighters Union

Of the many significant achievements during her time at the UFUA, Wattie was absolutely instrumental in achieving legislative reform in Australia with Australian governments for the first time recognising occupational cancer in firefighters.  The work undertaken by Wattie that contributed to the ground-breaking 2011 Senate Inquiry into Occupational Cancers of Firefighters will most definitely be a lasting legacy. 






UFU Bulletin #190 SUPPORTING OUR RETURNED SERVICE PERSONNEL

The UFU respectfully advises all UFU members, in particular our ex-service personnel, to support the Tramways & East Melbourne (TEM) RSL in their bid to restore and maintain their Fitzroy/Collingwood RSL and to attend the above meeting next Tuesday 13 November.
