The Union and the Fire Service have agreed to recommence negotiations on Wednesday 23 September.

The Union understands the Fire Service Commission has received amended instructions from the government and this has led to agreement to recommence the negotiations.

Regardless, Union negotiators will re-enter the negotiations in good faith with the objective of achieving a proposed settlement that members can ratify.

As a gesture of good will and to facilitate bargaining the Union has advised the Fire Service that from 1800 hours on 22 September 2009, all strike action will be suspended.

Members are therefore instructed to perform normal duties from 1800 hours on 22 September.

Please note that this means undertaking normal work that occurs and arises from 1800 hours on 22 September. It does not mean undertaking or completing work that occurred or arose prior to that date and during the course of the strike action – that is – there will be no “catch-up” work undertaken.
