UFU SPECIAL GENERAL
Members are reminded that the UFU will be holding a special general members meeting next week.
This is an important meeting as members will be updated on the current industrial climate including the barrage of attacks by the MFB and the CFA on your terms and conditions of employment. These attacks are fully supported and endorsed by the Napthine Government.
The UFU will inform members of the industrial and political strategies to preserve your rights at work.
This will include a detailed briefing of current significant litigation including the MFB’s application to abolish the Operational Staff Agreement and the ACFO Agreement and its implications. The update will also include current CFA cases in the Federal Court such as the VSO’s and Recruits.
The UFU’s campaign against this Napthine Government – Napthine Slashes You Burn – is well underway. The meeting will be informed of the success of recent activities and how crucial it is to maintain membership participation in upcoming campaign actions to change this Government.
An update on the current status of bargaining for both MFB and CFA operational staff will also be provided.
There will be two meetings to assist in facilitating attendance at the following times and location:
VICTORIA TRADES HALL
CNR LYGON ST AND VICTORIA ST
