CODE 2, VOL 33, NO 14 : 01 july 2019

QFES confirm complete removal of Temporary Firefighters across Queensland

As you will recall, in March 2016 QFES signed a Deed of Agreement with your union for the removal of Temporary Firefighters across Queensland.

The deed includes agreement on a range of matters regarding the removal of temps, but most importantly QFES agreed to the complete removal of temps by 30 June 2019.

Your union has been informed by QFES that as of today, 1 July 2019, they have met the requirements of the Deed – they have informed your union that there are no temps engaged in any location.

The UFUQ thanks QFES for the work they have done to meet the requirements of the deed.
