The Union is concerned that on a unilateral basis, the Fire Service has put out instructions to Managers regarding some of the new provisions in the renewed Collective Agreement.

In particular the Union refers to instructions regarding:

  • Mileage reimbursement
  • Black Watch conditions
  • Time Banking

Consequently the Union has advised the Chief Executive/National Commander that the Union disputes these instructions and has further advised him that the Union also believes this unilateral action is a breach of good faith.

Where appropriate (e.g. Black Watch conditions), the Union has advised the Chief Executive that the status quo must remain until the Dispute is resolved.
Members will be updated on the progress of these Disputes.
