In our previous email we described some serious concerns we have about the secondment arrangements in the new FRV Operations Agreement, as agreed to by the Government.
We subsequently sought legal advice to see if there was anything that could be done to stop this. But the advice was clear – the Government has designed the Fire Services Reform Legislation in such a way that no one can stop these changes going through.
In other words, they have stitched this up with no regard for what it means for CFA PTA staff.
Whilst we cannot prevent this Agreement going through the Fair Work Commission, we will be holding CFA to account to ensure that they do everything they can to protect your roles, and fulfil their obligations to you as an employer. We have written to CFA to this effect, and await their response.
