We want our Minister to stand with us, not against us

    1. Petition by

      United Voice & United Firefighters Union

Queensland Firefighters and Ambulance Officers put their lives on the line every day.

They are dedicated professionals, who deserve the support of the government to do their job safely.

Cost cutting will risk community safety while the governments demands to remove ‘consultative’ provisions will mean that the experts are taken out of the decision making process all together.

We think that the Minister for Community Safety should be standing up for Ambulance Officers and Firefighters, and call on him to guarantee ongoing consultation arangements, and that there will be no cost cutting in these vital front line areas.

      Money in the bank does not proform C.P.R.,extract accident casualties or put out fires, people do, the government has a duty of care to protect Life, Property, Enviroment and then the budget.
