CODE 2, VOL 31, NO 10 : 05 april 2017
PROFESSIONAL FIREFIGHTER AND COMMUNICATIONS officers UPDATE
Certified Agreement 2016 – Update
You would have received an sms from me on Friday 31 March 2017, informing you that due to the continuing effects of Ex-Tropical Cyclone Debbie, the review period for the draft 2016 agreement had been extended.
I can now report that your union and Fire and Rescue have agreed that the review period will end at midnight Friday 7 April 2017.
The voting period (for your opportunity to vote yes to accept the offer in the draft agreement) will run from midnight Friday 7 April to Midnight Wednesday 19 April 2017.
This gives all QFES and Fire and Rescue employees 12 days to access the voting website and vote on the agreement.
I will provide detailed instructions on that voting process to you on Friday 7 April, and I understand that QFES and Fire and Rescue will also be providing instructions to you via your work email.
I look forward to the yes vote being successful. If it is, the next step is application to the QIRC for certification of the agreement and commencement.
