MEMBERS VOTE TO ACCEPT EA OFFER

UFUSA News

The ballot for the UFUSA MFS Firefighters Enterprise Agreement (EA) closed at midday today and with the results just in from the private company which conducted the electronic ballot, I can advise you of an overwhelming participation and acceptance of the offer by members.

With a high return of 87.5% of those eligible to vote, 920 (91% of those voting), were in favour of acceptance of the offer and 94 (9%) were against, meaning the draft EA is accepted.

Many thanks to our Shop Stewards, State Councillors and Staff for all your hard work in communicating with members and in achieving the outcomes contained in the offer.

And a very heartfelt thank you to all members who stood united and strong to improve the previous offers made and who calmly looked at all considerations and maturely debated the issues involved.

Your participation in the ballot in such numbers is especially appreciated.

I will now sign the necessary documentation for the application to be made to the SA Employment Tribunal and hopefully we will get an early date for certification. I understand that it will take some time for payments to be calculated and to flow and I await the employer’s advice regarding when members will start to receive payments. I will keep you informed of developments in relation to these matters.

In solidarity
