To ALL UFU CFA MEMBERS
UFU WINS STAY OF FWC DECISION TO
PRESERVE STAFFING CLAUSES IN CLAIM
IN CFA OPS STAFF BARGAINING
WHILE APPEAL IS BEING HEARD
Further to Bulletin 252, on Wednesday the UFU was granted a stay application pending an appeal against the Fair Work Commission’s decision that two clauses in the UFU log of claims for the CFA Operational Staff negotiations were caught by Re: AEU principles.
As the UFU have been successful in obtaining a stay in the order to remove these two clauses from our claims, bargaining on clauses (other than these two clauses) will continue after the election and pending the appeal.
The appeal is scheduled to be heard by the Full Bench of the Fair Work Commission in March 2015.
The UFU will update members as further information comes to hand.
