In this edition - As you would know, after many years of campaigning, in September 2015, the Palaszczuk Government passed amendments to Queensland’s workers’ compensation laws that introduced presumptive legislation for Firefighters who are diagnosed with one of 12 cancers. UFUQ members have benefited greatly from these laws. But cancers are not the only work related injuries that significantly affect UFUQ members, and since 2015 your union has been campaigning for similar presumptive legislation for PTSI.
In this edition - I am pleased to report that due to your union’s involvement, the switch to offering FBAN and Predictive Services roles to anyone but those with relevant experience has been halted.
In this edition - As professional firefighters we dedicate our lives to protecting our communities and to looking after each other, and we take great pride in what we do.
In this edition - Monday 3 May 2021 is Labour Day and therefore a gazetted public holiday across Queensland.
