Canberra Bus Trip

September 2, 2005

The FBEU, in conjunction with other emergency service unions, will be attending a rally in Canberra to raise awareness about the Government’s proposed changes to the Industrial Relations System.

The rally will be held at Old Parliament House on Wednesday 14 September 2005

To ensure members can attend, the Union is organising a bus from Sydney, departing in time to arrive in Canberra at 11:30am.

The place and time of departure will be determined based on the location of members attending, that is, if most members live in the west then it will depart from a location in the west. The Illawarra sub branch has also arranged for a bus to leave from Wollongong.

To assist in the organisation, the Union needs members interested in coming to confirm their attendance with the Union office by Wednesday 7 September 2005.

This can be done by phone (9267 5552), fax (9267 6304) or email (

The Union sees this as a great way for members catch up with their Comrades whilst sending a strong message to the Government. The only way the Union will win this fight is if members become active and join in activities such as this. We look forward to seeing you on the day.

Stay United
