TO ALL UFU MEMBERS

STAFFING SCHEDULE VARIATION APPROVED BY FAIR WORK COMMISSION

VARIED SCHEDULE OPERATES FROM TODAY

Members are advised that the Fair Work Commission has today approved the variation to the CFA Staffing Schedule, with the varied schedule operating from today.

This variation is the result of significant work by the UFU, Branch Committee of Management and members, and also results from the successful Full Bench Federal Court Appeal by the UFU.

The variation to the CFA UFU Operational Staff Enterprise Agreement increases the numbers in the staffing schedule by 170, with the minimum day staffing now at 133 and night staffing at 132.

New stations and staffing at Rowville, Pakenham and Ocean Grove have been inserted into the schedule, as well as additional staffing on appliances at Hallam, Shepparton, Mildura, Rosebud, Mornington, Sunbury, Point Cook, Traralgon, Geelong City, Dandenong, Melton, Corio, Frankston, Bendigo and Ballarat, with additional relief inserted into these locations as well as Craigieburn and Caroline Springs.

The varied staffing schedule has been inserted into the current Enterprise Agreement at Schedule 1 and is an enforceable as part of the Enterprise Agreement.

These positions are already deployed in CFA and are separate to the Government commitment of an additional 450 CFA and MFB firefighters. Members should also be aware these are new positions and are not positions due to attrition.

Should members have any further inquiries, please contact the UFU on 9419 8811.
