UFUSA Safety And Resourcing Campaign

In the absence of a satisfactory response from the employer to the matters in dispute and to fight for an enterprise agreement outcome that makes sure this can’t happen again, industrial actions will escalate from tomorrow Friday, 22 October 2021 at 08:00 hours.

In addition to the Industrial Actions which commenced at 08:00hrs on Friday 15 October 2021 where:

  • All Operational Act Ups are banned
  • Passive work routine to be adopted (Booster Tests and
  • Community Education to continue).
  • No Charging for AIRS Reporting to be adopted (all other
  • call details to be included).
  • And from 0800 hours Monday 18 October 2021, all GADs ceased,

the next escalation of industrial action will involve the following:

From tomorrow, Friday 22 October 2021, at 08:00hrs

• The ban on Act Ups (except for relevant emergencies) and GADs in Marine will commence.
• The ban on Act Ups for full-time on-shift personnel in Regional Operations will commence.

From Monday, 25 October 2021 at 08:00 hours

  • The ban on GADs for full time on-shift personnel in Regional Operations will commence.

Members are advised that the employer has notified a dispute on this matter to the SA Employment
Tribunal and a compulsory conciliation conference has been scheduled for 09:15 hours on Wednesday,
27 October 2021.

Thank you for your solidarity, with particular thanks to those of you immediately impacted personally
by the bans. Our thoughts are also with our members in the training department who work so hard to
deliver quality outcomes for firefighters whilst MFS management maltreat the industrial aspects.

In solidarity,
