100 days since Daniel Andrews claimed he’d “ended” the CFA dispute

It’s been 100 days since Daniel Andrews claimed he’d “ended” the CFA dispute.

On 15 June 2016, Daniel Andrews declared: “This dispute had to come to an end and I ended it”.

Since then, the Andrews Labor Government has been rocked by allegations of bullying, more resignations of senior personnel, a Senate Committee inquiry, a Commonwealth bill amending the Fair Work Act and civil litigation in the Supreme Court challenging the EBA.

The CFA dispute has now been running for more than 1,200 days, of which the majority of this time has been under the Andrews Labor Government which was elected 663 days ago.

We are about to enter another dangerous bushfire season and because of Daniel Andrews’ ham-fisted handling of the CFA dispute, it means the lives and property of hundreds of thousands of Victorians is at risk.
