McConville said the agreement was reached after 99.4% of members voted in favour of the new measures. McConville said that despite 26 meetings in two years, firefighters have been unable to reach an agreement with the ACT Emergency Services Agency on their new collective agreement for businesses. I can confirm that ACTAS is just making too many spoiled meals, they can also sleep at the station if they do not participate in overnight incidents. If you look at the 10% increase, 5% of them should remove a clause in the agreement that the changes in labour practices mentioned must be agreed upon by both parties, the government wants that amended to consult, given the way this government consults with other parties, then ignores the consultation process and does what it wants, I do not do the wrong thing to say no. I think you have a personal axe to grind here, almost 15 months after firefighters took labor-fighting measures to avoid reaching a wage agreement with the ACT government, a new bargaining enterprise agreement (EBA) received almost unanimous support from union members. ACT Secretary Greg McConville hailed the «historic agreement» between ESA and ACTFR. Photo: Comes. You can find our certified agreement here. www.cmtedd.act.gov.au/employment-framework/for-employees/agreements «Sometimes it was a fight. We left for a very long time without an EBA, and our members took union action… but today is a historic agreement,» McConville said. Despite 26 meetings in two years, firefighters have not reached an agreement with ESA.

We did not receive a response to our last request that the negotiating meetings take place earlier. Mr. McConville stated that the protected union actions would be administrative in nature and would go to the ASE without endangering the safety of the community. I also wonder what others think about why, in these times of budgetary efficiency, they can sleep during their night shifts while receiving their wages and rights. No other first responder can do that, and I am sure there are training, maintenance and management tasks that can be done during this period so that they can ensure that their primary community safety objective is maintained.
If you look at the annual reports, it shows that one of the heaviest workloads for the ACTF-R is medical assistance, that is, ACTAS helps with workload. For example, the number of incidents today so far; Incidents involving ACT Ambulance – 63 incidents involving ACT Fire – Rescue – 0 Mr. McConville stated that the union was very interested in meeting with ESA as soon as possible and that any changes to the prohibitions would only take place with the minimum required period of at least three days.
