The Queensland Fire and Emergency Service Award 2019 has taken effect from the 6 November 2019 for a period of 3 years. The SOU Executive commenced this process in late 2018 seeking input from members which was used to base our negotiations on. This agreement is a result of hard work and significant negotiations by the Executive in delivering a very good outcome for members which provides an immediate benefit but also importantly longer term improvements to our conditions. There are a number of new clauses that the SOU will be involved in and will have significant input to ensure our interests aren’t overlooked. The SOU Executive will be seeking nominations from members to assist with bodies of work as a result of this agreement.
