FBEU Centenary March – A day to celebrate

In October 1910, during the first year of the NSW Fire Brigades’ existence, firefighters got together and formed this Union, the Fire Brigade Employees Union of New South Wales. A century later, the FBEU continues to weld together professional firefighters, making sure that we are heard by the Department and treated fairly. October 2010 marks the Centenary Year of the Union, the hundredth anniversary of our birth and of the start of the struggles that have made this job what it is today.

It’s a day to remember the struggles that have brought us a fair working week, the 10/14 Roster, decent wages and PPE. A day to think about what we’ve brought to the community, and the obstacles that we’ve overcome to do it

This Thursday: FBEU Centenary March – A day to celebrate what we are, our collective strength, and a day to renew our bonds and get ready for the struggles to come.
