On behalf of the National President, National Secretary and the National Committee of Management of the United Firefighters Union of Australia; we extend our best wishes to all of our members, Global Alliance partners and families for a very merry Christmas and a happy, healthy and safe 2016.

“If I were a factory employee, a labourer on the railroad, or a wage earner of any sort, I would undoubtedly join the union of my trade. If I were opposed to the policy of the union, I would join for no other reason than to help rectify that mistake. If I took exception to a dishonest leader, I would join the union to help remove him. In short, I believe in the union, and I believe that all men who benefit by the union, are morally bound to help to the extent of their power in the common interest advanced by the union. Unions, whilst they consist of members, do not belong to the members, but rather, they hold in trust, something for those in the future.”
United States President Theodore Roosevelt. 1901 – 1909
In New York on the 11th of September 2001, 343 firefighters and 71 police officers lost their lives in the line of duty. Their deaths were felt by emergency services personnel all across the world.
The families, friends and colleagues of those who made the ultimate sacrifice will always be in our thoughts.
We never forget.
