Our CFA volunteers deserve our support

Sign the petition to put Victoria’s volunteers FIRST and tell Daniel Andrews “Hands off the CFA!”

Victorians rely on volunteer firefighters to protect our communities when we need them most.  Now our CFA volunteers need your support.

Daniel Andrews wants to hand control of the CFA to the United Firefighters Union (UFU).  This deal will give the UFU control over CFA operations and remove the rights of volunteers and CFA management.

Many of our local CFA volunteers have contacted me, deeply concerned about what the UFU’s demands will mean for our local fire service.

Please sign the petition to show your support for our CFA volunteers.

Send Daniel Andrews a message: “Hands off the CFA!”
