UFU SPECIAL GENERAL MEMBERS MEETING

The Branch Committee of Management has resolved to call a special general meeting to update both CFA and MFB members on the current status regarding bargaining and legal proceedings that are currently on foot. Members will also be updated on the state of bargaining for CFA, MFB, Compass and Transfield.

It is important that you make time to attend this meeting as a detailed presentation will be given to members so they are fully informed on the current situation, the potential future direction and consequences of the employers’ actions if they are successful in the various legal proceedings.

Delegates will be sent this bulletin to ensure that every effort is pursued with a view to eliciting a large response from members, given the importance of the above matters.

We appreciate and are proud of the solidarity and commitment of members to date but in some respects our journey has just began regarding some factors which we need to discuss as a collective.

Meeting details are as follows:

9.30am and 7.30pm

Thursday 31 July 2014

Trades Hall

(corner of Victoria and Lygon Streets, Melbourne)

This matter is of utmost importance to your conditions of employment. Both the employers and Government are seeking to unravel years of terms and conditions by copious litigation at both the Fair Work Commission and Federal Court.

Members are also advised that UFU merchandise will be available for purchase on the day.

Please RSVP your attendance or apologies to reception@ufuvic.asn.au
