Sitrep 44: Summary of changes to Awards

August 22, 2023

Key changes for new Awards

As per our last Sitreps (here and here), the FBEU and FRNSW have reached agreement on new Awards for all three of the Awards which cover professional firefighters in NSW.

These new Awards, while only 1-year Awards which expire in February 2024, deliver significant reform and key gains for members going forward.

A Key changes and Improvements document for all three Awards has been created for you to assist in informing your Comrades as to the changes. You can download and read this summary here.

A reminder that information zoom meetings for delegates are commencing today. Please refer to yesterday’s Sitrep and for dates/times and links.
