Sitrep 2/2023: Vaccination Policy Decision handed down; Fire Brigades Super Annual Meeting

January 18, 2023

FRNSW COVID-19 Vaccination Policy Decision handed down by the IRC

This afternoon the Industrial Relations Commission handed down its decision regarding FRNSW Covid-19 vaccination policy. In this decision although the Commission found some difficulties with the policy, it was determined ultimately that the policy is lawful and reasonable.

You can find the decision here.

We are still considering the implications of this decision on impacted members and the membership more broadly prior to considering any further action.

With that in mind, we are acutely aware that many members are currently facing misconduct investigations. We wish to assure those members that we are representing that we will be in contact as soon as we have been able to fully understand the implications of the decision and obtained further advice. 

If any member requires immediate or urgent advice regarding correspondence sent by FRNSW following the issuing of this decision, please direct such queries to the FBEU via Outside of these urgent queries however we do ask that members who we are currently representing, please await further contact from FBEU industrial staff once we have had an opportunity to further consider the decision and speak to FRNSW.
