UFU URGENT RALLY TOMORROW – CHANGES TO BUS TIMES

Members are advised the UFU will be rallying tomorrow at Parliament Steps to support the proposed enterprise agreement and combat the misleading statements propagated by the VFBV, Liberals/Nationals and other politicians that are attempting to use this dispute to further their political agenda.

The details of the rally are below:

                      Tuesday 7 June 2016
                 11.30am
                 Wear structural uniform and helmets
                 Steps of Victorian Parliament – Spring Street Melbourne

Please make sure that you bring as many family and friends as you can to show support for career firefighters, including the many volunteer members around the state that have shown support for all Victorian firefighters.

Make no mistake, this effects all CFA and MFB members as past experience has shown us that the outcome of CFA bargaining has impacts on MFB bargaining.

As members are aware, the CFA referred the dispute to the Fair Work Commission in late October 2015. After approximately seven months of conferences and submissions in the Commission, the Fair Work Commission has provided a final recommendation to settle this long ongoing dispute. The UFU has accepted this recommendation but as of this morning the CFA Board rejected the proposal via the media.

Members are able to assure the community that the community protection will be maintained during this rally and fire stations will remain open. If you are on shift/ can not attend please ensure that you send as many family and friends to represent you as possible.
