Union attack on CFA couldendanger us allThe Coalition supports the work of all firefighters in Victoria; both career and volunteer. Due to the outrageous demands of the United Firefighters Union (UFU) in their enterprise bargaining agreement negotiations, the CFA is under attack. The UFU is demanding that a new enterprise agreement for firefighters include a union-run veto board, effectively handing control of the CFA to the United Firefighters Union.
The UFU is also demanding seven paid firefighters must be on the fire ground prior to commencement of operations. This would leave local volunteers watching farms and homes go up in flames while they wait for paid fire fighters to arrive. It is ridiculous, unworkable and a risk to homes and lives. Here in regional Victoria, we rely on volunteer firefighters to protect us. A union takeover will destroy CFA volunteerism as we know it.
Far from rejecting these outrageous demands out of hand, Daniel Andrews is working with the UFU. This is the same union that put on their uniforms and campaigned with Daniel Andrews in 2014. Now they want their loyalty to Daniel Andrews rewarded with a secret backroom deal that will destroy the CFA and put regional communities at risk. Join me in telling the Premier and the union to keep their hands off the CFA. Sign the petition at 梧桐夜网handsofftheCFA南京夜网419论坛.

Moral investment could change the worldJust think what an extraordinarily optimistic world we would find ourselves in if Australia’s $2 trillion worth of superannuation savings was invested in renewable energy technology and our very own agriculture, instead of dodgy mining developments in the third world.
