The United Firefighters Union (UFU) is planning to rally outside Victoria’s state parliament house as part of a campaign against deceptive behaviour by the Metropolitan Fire Brigade (MFB) board.
UFU state secretary Peter Marshall said on December 15 the MFB board had agreed with the union on a new enterprise agreement and explanatory memorandum to be sent to MFB staff for a vote.
But in January the MFB's lawyers wrote a new explanatory memorandum that gave a different meaning to the agreement.
The union took legal action to stop the ballots being sent out and will hold members meetings to consider a motion of no confidence in the MFB board.
