The CFA Board, CEO, Chief and Volunteers have been ignored in their protests against an EBA that hands control of the CFA to the UFU, and it is up to all Volunteers and their communities to stop it.
The Coalition supports the work of all firefighters in Victoria, both career and volunteer.
The Andrews Government has descended into chaos as a result of the secret deals made prior to the 2014 state election and now Daniel Andrews has undermined his own minister by cutting her out of the loop to make further secret backroom deals with the United Firefighters Union (UFU).
The UFU is demanding that a new enterprise agreement for firefighters include a UFU run veto board, effectively handing control of the CFA to the United Fire Fighters Union.
Further clauses as part of such an agreement include:
- The presence of 7 paid firefighters on the fire ground prior to commencement of operations;
- Create a Consultative Committee that has a Veto power on Management decisions and
- The UFU must be consulted and reach agreement on the structure of any volunteer support including BASO’s for Volunteers.
Victoria relies on volunteer firefighters to protect them and their communities when they are at their most vulnerable.
A UFU takeover will impede on the rights of volunteers and ultimately put at jeopardy CFA volunteerism and the safety of Victorians, something even Daniel Andrews’ own minister knows.
Victorians deserve a Premier that will govern in the best interests of the state, not in the best interests of his union mates.
Volunteer CFA Firefighters who have protected us for generations, now need your help, join me in telling the Premier to keep his hands off the CFA, sign the petition at www.handsofftheCFA.com.au and spread the word ensure they are heard.
