Rural fire officers EBA update
The certified agreement for Rural Fire officers is progressing, albeit slowly.
Drafting of key documents is still happening and will continue to occur while QFES sign off on the finished product and the state government sign off on the budgetary requirements for the new agreement. These processes should wrap up soon.
The agreement will then be presented to Rural Fire officers and other QFES employees with the standard minimum 7 days for review, followed by you and your colleagues voting on the new agreement.
Back pay of your 2.5% wages increase will commence once the agreement is finalised. This will be payable from the 1st of October 2016. Any other entitlements will commence at the date of certification of the agreement by the QIRC.
Your union will keep you updated when there is more news to share.
