The Fair Work Commission yesterday handed down its decision regarding the CFA’s application seeking good faith bargaining orders against the UFU.
The decision ruled that certain clauses relating to staffing ratios and numbers were in breach of a recent Federal Court decision by Justice Murphy involving the CFA and UFU, and if not removed would constitute a failure by the UFU to bargain in good faith.
The offending claims impact upon the CFA’s ability to allocate resources to best meet the needs of Victorians.
It is the governments’ expectation that the UFU will now return to the table to bargain with the CFA in good faith so a new enterprise bargaining agreement can be finalised.
The Napthine Government’s number one priority is putting the community first and strengthening the state’s emergency management response.
