CODE 2, VOL 30, NO 32 : 15 july 2016

UPDATE:       Firecom 'Gate 3'

Following confirmation on 1 July 2016 from QFES that the ‘gate 3’ plan had been completely ceased by the Commissioner, your union wrote to QFES asking for a breakdown of the current staffing numbers across the state in every fire communication location.

Once your state office obtains the actual, current staff numbers, including the breakdown of full-time, part-time, casual, acting in role, and temporary appointments, the process of working to fix the current situation can commence.

Then we can work with fire communication delegates and others who want to participate to commence an open consultative approach to moving forward on this issue.

I will keep you informed as the matter progresses.
