UFU WELCOMES INVITATION FROM THE

MFB CEO TO MEET WITH THE UFU

MEMBERSHIP

The UFU welcomes the MFB CEO’s invitation to meet with the UFU membership in the form of a Q&A session on Wednesday 27 August.

All employees not on duty have been invited to attend this session.

Given the turbulent times in the MFB currently and the abhorrent actions of MFB senior management in seeking to destroy firefighter terms and conditions the UFU welcomes this initiative from the CEO to finally hear what his employees have to say.

We look forward to the session and we are sure that every UFU member has many questions they’d like to ask.

We understand facing senior managers at the MFB may be daunting for some members and further, others members who are on duty will be unable to attend. Therefore, should any members have questions they wish to be put to the CEO please send them through to the UFU office and as your representative in the workplace we will ask them on your behalf.

The UFU remains hopeful that during this Q&A session Mr. Higgins will ask some considered questions of the people who actually keep the brigade running, and be able to learn from the MFB’s experienced and long serving employees the great achievements of the MFB. Through this experience we hope Mr. Higgins will come to value his employees rather than continue in the current form of MFB senior management and seek to denigrate them.

Again, Mr. Higgins, we look forward to this opportunity for your employees to have, what we hope, will be a robust discussion with you.

Strength in Unity
