TO ALL UFU MEMBERS

UFU WITNESS

STATEMENTS

AVAILABLE  ON UFU

 WEBSITE

Yesterday Members were advised that the UFU had filed approximately 55 witness statements in response to the MFB allegations and applications to terminate the MFB UFU Operational Staff Agreement 2010 and the MFB UFU Assistant Chief Fire Officer Agreement 2010.

Members can now access a copy of all UFU witness statements via a password protected section on the UFU website.

While 55 witness statements were filed, some were composite statements where 18 other firefighter’s information and views were put through the one witness.  Therefore the UFU evidence submitted was by a total 73 operational staff members.

These statements are now available on the UFU website.  Members can access the statements by obtaining the username and password from their shop steward.

It should be noted that in addition to the witness statement submitted, there were a significant number of other firefighters who were willing to provide affidavit evidence against the MFB applications to terminate the agreements.

On behalf of the Branch Committee of Management I want to acknowledge the intestinal fortitude and commitment of the membership and other employees who have submitted information and witness statements against the MFB’s case.

We urge you to read the UFU evidence and indeed involve yourself by organising a group to attend the hearing in the Fair Work Commission.

Below is a list of each hearing day and the shift on day duty.

Anyone not on duty on the hearing days are strongly encouraged to attend the Fair Work Commission whenever they can.

To assist,  the UFU is collating a roster.  Please ring Rini 0400 441 616 or email io3@ufuvic.asn.au to be included in the roster.
