Stop Government discrimination against sick
CFA volunteer firefighters
Victoria’s CFA volunteer firefighters work side by side at fires with paid firefighters, and are exposed to the same smoke, chemicals, toxins and carcinogens. Yet the Andrews Labor Government is proposing to pass “presumptive legislation” which will openly discriminate against CFA volunteers who are sick with cancer, and exclude them from the protection of this “Firefighters’ Cancer Law”.
CFA volunteers protect the community 24/7 throughout the year, not just in summer.
Help the Government to understand that Victorians will NOT tolerate discrimination against their CFA volunteers. The Firefighters’ Cancer Law must cover ALL firefighters – NO exceptions, NO exclusions, and NO delays. Cancer doesn’t discriminate between paid and volunteer firefighters – neither should the Andrews Labor Government.
