Battin: CFA Legislation

Tuesday 27 March 2018

CFA Legislation

Just days after CFA volunteers risked their lives fighting bushfires across south-western Victoria, Daniel Andrews is now trying to ram through his legislation to tear apart the CFA.

Only Daniel Andrews could repay volunteers for their bravery by removing the very legislation that protects those who protect us.

The Liberal Nationals will continue to stand up for Victoria’s 60,000 CFA volunteers.

Those Members of the Legislative Council that side with Peter Marshall and the UFU will have to explain to voters at the next election why they have put the safety of Victorians over an ambit claim by unions.

This is why the Liberal Nationals commitment to hold a Royal Commission into this issue and to ensure community safety is put first.
