Shadow Minister for Emergency Services Brad Battin
The Andrews Labor Government has descended into chaos.
Daniel Andrews is at direct odds with his own minister and has now cut her out of the loop to do a secret backroom deal with the UFU to let them take control of the CFA.
The UFU is demanding that a new enterprise agreement for firefighters include a UFU run veto board.
A veto board will ultimately allow the UFU to have the last say on all CFA/MFB decisions, rendering Victoria’s fire services a puppet on the UFU’s string.
Millions of Victorians rely on volunteer firefighters to protect them and their communities from fire. A UFU takeover of the CFA puts this in jeopardy, something even Daniel Andrews’ own minister knows.
Victorians deserve a Premier that will govern in the best interests of the state, not in the best interests of his mates.
Quotes attributable to Shadow Minister for Emergency Services, Brad Battin:
“Daniel Andrews has sold out the CFA, he has sold out his own Minister and now he is about to sell out Victorians.”
“Victorians rely on volunteer firefighters to protect our communities and Daniel Andrews is putting that protection at risk to pay-off his mates in the UFU.”
