FBEU President and State Secretary lead the firefighter’s march to Parliament.

On 15 June 2011, 12,000 firefighters, police, teachers, nurses and other public sector workers turned out to Sydney’s Parliament House to protest the O’Farrell Coalition Government’s radical changes to industrial relations laws that would leave them with the worst workplace laws in the country. The FBEU is warning of a general fire strike, the biggest in 100 years if the laws are not repealed.
