CODE 2, VOL 34, NO 63 : 10 december 2020


While the UFUQ state office remains open year round for contacts regarding industrial matters, please be advised that administration staff will be on annual leave from Wednesday 23 December 2020 until Tuesday 5 January 2021.

If you require anything from administration during this time such as a change of address or contact details, including station, rank, bank account details or personal email address, please forward your changes to [email protected] or update on our website here. The UFUQ office administration staff will ensure all administrative matters are dealt with promptly, on their return.

If you urgently need to speak to a union representative during this period, it is best that you contact your local UFUQ branch representative or SCM representative in the first instance. If further assistance is required, they will be in contact with UFUQ industrial officers over this period.

You can find the contact details for your local UFUQ branch representative or SCM representative here.


I would like to remind members to either install or update your UFUQ HOTSPOT app on your smart phone. 

Communication is constantly published to your emails, and to the app, and ensuring the app is installed and/or updated will allow you to have access to all information your state office puts out.

For current users:

Please ensure that you have notifications turned on for the app.

1. Go to your app store icon on your iPhone or Android device and type in the search menu “UFUQ hotspot”.
2. Download the app to your phone.
3. Enter your username (badge number) and password (1234).

2021 Diaries and calendars

Your 2021 diaries and calendars will be mailed out in late December.

Please contact the union office to update address details if required.

Helmet Stickers

Your 2021 UFUQ member helmet sticker is also in the pack coming to you.

You will recall you have the right to place your union sticker on your turn out helmet.

If any manager suggests the UFUQ 2021 member sticker cannot be worn on the helmet, contact your local delegate immediately.
