March 23, 2021

The candidates for the 2021 FBEU State Committee of Management election have now been finalised.

You can find the list of candidates here.

Congratulations to every member who has been nominated and also to those members who have been elected unopposed. It is a privilege to be nominated by your fellow members and to represent our great union.

I’d like to wish every candidate running a great campaign.

Voting material will be posted Monday 29 March 2021 by the NSW Electoral Commission. The full election timetable is available here.

We’ve made contact with both Australia Post and the NSW Electoral Commission to discuss the likelihood of the ongoing flood emergency to delay the delivery and return of postal ballots. We want to make sure that all members are given every opportunity to have their say in this election and will keep you updated as things progress.

If you’ve changed your address recently or aren’t sure if your details are up to date, please contact the Union Office via to ensure we, and therefore the NSW Electoral Commission, have the correct details for you and/or can assist you to receive materials.

All members are encouraged to vote in the election. We have a lot of important work ahead of us and how we tackle that work should absolutely reflect the views of our membership.

Any enquiries concerning this election should be directed to Andrea Jackson at the NSW Electoral Commission, on telephone (02) 9290 5960 or

I know this is an incredibly busy time for firefighters across the state with catastrophic flooding on top of our normal duties. The work FBEU members do as first responders is unparalleled, and it saves lives.

Stay safe out there.

In Unity,

Leighton Drury

State Secretary
