To ALL UFU MFB CORP AND TECH MEMBERS
REMINDER – BALLOT FOR PROTECTED INDUSTRIAL ACTION NOW OPEN
YOUR VOTE IS VITAL!
As of Monday this week members will have begun receiving ballots from the AEC to vote on the taking of protected industrial action.
As advised at membership meetings is absolutely imperative that all members return a vote.
In order to take industrial action of ballots posted at least 50% need to be returned and 50% +1 must be a yes vote. As such, it is vital that all members vote!
THE UFU BELIEVES IT IS IN YOUR INTEREST TO VOTE YES TO THIS INDUSTRIAL ACTION IN ORDER TO FURTHER YOUR CAMPAIGN FOR IMPROVED WORKING CONDITIONS
The UFU has been bargaining with the MFB since late last year for a new enterprise agreement for Corp and Tech members however to date no agreement has been reached on any major claim and in fact the MFB has overwhelming rejected most of the UFU’s claim.
Voting closes at 10am on Tuesday 1 March. For your vote to count it must be received by the AEC prior to this date. Members are therefore reminded to return your ballot as soon as you receive it as post can take some days to return.
If members have any queries in relation to this ballot or bargaining please contact UFU Industrial Officers Rini Krouskos or Stuart Miller on 9419 8811.
