100 Years and Counting
The inaugural meeting of the United Firemen’s Union of Victoria was held on January 22, 1911. From small beginnings and a quiet start – the first meeting was held in a room under the stairs of the old Eastern Hill fire station – our Union and the Members have battled successive managements and governments to establish and maintain entitlements and conditions that match or better all others.
In these magazines we look back over the last 100 years and recount the tales and struggles of our humble union that has strived and worked hard to deliver so much for our members and their families.
Each edition provides a telling insight into the struggles, battles, losses and wins of the times. All forming a vital piece in the making of our Union and the strength of our members today. A union is only as strong as its membership and its strength in that unity that keep us strong and flourishing for our members as we meet the challenges of today and the years to come.
