TO ALL UFU MEMBERS

STAFFING SCHEDULE VARIATION BALLOT RESULT – OVERWHELMING SUPPORT FOR VARIATION TO STAFFING SCHEDULE

Members are advised that the result for the ballot to approve the variation to the staffing schedule has been returned, with 95% voting to approve the variation.

As a result of this successful vote, and the successful Full Bench Federal Court Appeal by the UFU, the CFA will now be required to file for a variation to the CFA UFU Operational Staff Enterprise Agreement to increase the numbers in the staffing schedule by 170.

Once the Fair Work Commission has approved the variation, the new staffing schedule will be inserted into the current Enterprise Agreement at Schedule 1.

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.
