MEETING OF INTERESTED MEMBERS –SFQ and SO PROMOTIONS
As reported in Wordback No39/2020, our union is pursuing the issues arising from SAMFS Memoranda 63 and 64 dealing with the calling of the 2021 Full-Time SO Promotion Process (63) and the call for applications to enrol in the Senior Firefighter Level 2 Qualified Development Program (64).
Members directly affected by these matters can be assured that your union remains committed to vigorously pursuing the resolution of these matters through all available avenues to protect the interests of members now and into the future. We regret the distress being experienced by all of you who are negatively affected by these matters and we continue to seek proper resolution.
Discussions with management to date about membership concerns however, have not been fruitful and it does not appear there is a real prospect of resolution by working together, leaving us with the industrial and legal avenues to pursue.
Accordingly a meeting of interested members has been called for Tuesday, 8 December 2020 at 10:30 hours at the UFUSA Office at 148 South Road Torrensville.
COVID-19 restrictions will be in place so preregistration is required by calling us on 8352 7211 or emailing to email@example.com this will help to ensure the health and safety of all. Accredited COVID Marshalls will be in attendance.
Meanwhile we are so proud of members of our union; such good people doing such good things.
As Movember closes and the shaving cream comes out, it’s heartening how many firefighters raised substantial funds for mental health.
We are told that the current Recruit Squad itself raised over $5500. A massive effort!
Well done to everyone in Squad 57 and to all our members who participated in this fantastic initiative.
