The Victorian Government has created a new organisation, Fire Rescue Victoria, which will absorb many of the functions currently performed by paid staff at the Country Fire Authority.
But that doesn’t mean ASU members at the CFA can go through major workplace change without being consulted.
Our experienced organisers and specialist legal team are making sure ASU members who work at the CFA are properly informed of the proposed changes and can have a say.
So this week the ASU is again in the Fair Work Commission because the CFA had not consulted about this major workplace change.
Meetings have been cancelled, important information has been withheld and ASU members are in the dark about what this major change may mean for them.
But with the expertise in our union and the individualised approach we take to every workplace issue, we are able to stand up for members’ right.
