CODE 2, VOL 31, NO 32 : 20 december 2017

Christmas and New Year

Once again, the Christmas and New Year period is upon us.

For many people in our communities this period of the year provides much needed time for rest, and an opportunity to reflect on the last 12 months and to spend time with family and friends.

For our members, it can mean business as usual.

We dedicate our lives to serving our communities. The work we do can be extremely rewarding, but it can also be tough. Separation from family and friends can be difficult at this time of year. But, as peers, we look out for each other.

For those of us that may find this time of year difficult, remember, help is there if you need it.

On behalf of the UFUQ, I wish every member a safe and happy Christmas and New Year. I look forward to working with you all in 2018.

UFUQ State Office

While the UFUQ state office remains open year round, please be advised that administration staff will be on annual leave from Friday 22 December 2017 until Monday 8 January 2018.

If you require anything from administration during this time such as a change of address or contact details, including station, rank, bank account details or personal email address, please forward your changes to [email protected] or update on our website here. The UFUQ office administration staff will ensure all administrative matters are dealt with on their return.

If you urgently need to speak to a union representative during this period, it is best that you contact your local UFUQ branch representative or SCM representative in the first instance. If further assistance is required, they will be in contact with UFUQ industrial officers over this period.

You can find the contact details for your local UFUQ branch representative or SCM representative here.
