On behalf of your President and Branch Committee of Management, weextend our deepest appreciation to all UFU Members and Professional Career Firefighters and their families (and canine friends!) who attended the UFU Rally on Thursday the 19th October 2023.
Your attendance demonstrated dedication and commitment to the cause of firefighter and community safety. We had members of every rank and all years of service in attendance.
Your message was loud and clear:
We have a fire service crisis in Victoria. Firefighters need the necessary equipment and resourcing to protect the communities that we serve.
FRV COMMISSIONER GAVIN FREEMAN HAS FAILED TO SUPPORT HIS EMPLOYEES/OUR MEMBERS AGAINST A PROPOSAL TO REMOVE YOUR CRITICAL SAFETY MECHANISMS IN YOUR ENTERPRISE AGREEMENT.
WE HAVE A GOVERNMENT WHO HAS NOT RESOURCED FIRE RESCUE VICTORIA TO ENSURE THAT FIREFIGHTERS HAVE THE NECESSARY EQUIPMENT & SAFE SYSTEMS OF WORK TO PROTECT THE COMMUNITY.
This was the SECOND RALLY of MANY. For as long as Firefighters and the Victorian community are under attack, UFU Members/Victoria’s professional firefighters will campaign to raise awareness.
Strength in Unity
