On Thursday 14 May 2015, the Executive of the SOU met with the Hon. Jo-Ann Miller, Minister for Police, Fire and Emergency Services and Minister for Corrective Services.

The purpose of the meeting was to introduce the Executive and to highlight the role and objectives of the QFR-SOU. It also afforded the Executive the opportunity to have a conversation about some of the issues that are of concern to some of our members and the issues that we hope to address in the upcoming EB negotiations next year. The Minister was extremely interested in our views and spoke passionately about the importance of the role of fire officers in all ranks of the organisation. The SOU Executive is very much looking forward to further dialogue and maintaining a functioning relationship with Minister Miller into the future.
