RESOURCING – PLEASE JOIN US TOMORROW TO SEND A MESSAGE TO MR MARSHALL

UFUSA Safety And Resourcing Campaign

SA Unions has advised that a rally is being organised for tomorrow morning when the Liberal Party is holding its conference, and we are invited to participate.

The UFU will of course be there because it is important for us to use every opportunity to try to send our message to Mr Marshall and his government about the critical resourcing needs within the SAMFS. Please join us.

Mr Marshall needs to understand that he must stop playing politics with emergency services; his ‘smoke and mirrors’ approach is no substitute for mature discussion about professional asset management planning of trucks, engineering and equipment in the SA emergency services sector.

Mr Marshall still hasn’t met with us on this critical issue despite repeated requests.


Information continues to flow into our office in relation to the problems members are experiencing with our old fleet, including reports of an appliance which failed recently when turned out to an emergency, only to be followed by the failure of the backup appliance as well. *The incident involved was a going concern
leaving a requirement for other agencies to cover it.

Other vehicles’ faults have not been rectified due to the absence of any spare appliances. At the time of writing there are NONE. And the list of issues continues to grow as we experience “feast or famine”.

We are always very glad to see any additional resourcing which we have been able to squeeze out of the employer in this campaign, however if anyone is wondering what is meant by “smoke and mirrors”, we direct your attention to the 8 new appliances due to arrive in March 2022, on the eve of the State election. Followed, it appears, by a return to famine. With an ageing fleet and no plan, placing firefighters and the community we protect, at risk. Please join us to stop this happening.


WHEN: Tomorrow Saturday, 4 September 2021 08 15 – 09:30 hours
WHERE: ADELAIDE CONVENTION CENTRE

North Terrace – meet at the escalator


In solidarity
