Equality in the fire services is negotiable for Daniel Andrews

Opposition Press Releases

Equality is negotiable for Daniel Andrews when Peter Marshall is involved.

Today Emergency Services Minister James Merlino couldn’t explain why the Andrews Labor Government supports proposed changes to the MFB enterprise agreement that will ban part-time work.

Our ambulance, police and health services all allow part-time work in their EBAs, Daniel Andrews must explain why the fire services should be any different.

Sexism and discrimination in the fire services won’t end if the Premier continues to sit by and make it harder for women in our fire services to re-enter the workforce.

Daniel Andrews claims to support more women in the MFB, while supporting a proposed enterprise agreement that bans part-time work, makes it harder to take action against bullying and overrules discrimination law.

The standard Daniel Andrews walks past is the standard he accepts.
