VicForests staff are not able to move on with life decisions while the State Government obfuscates about the organisations future so CPSU is hosting a BBQ for our members and their guests from the Gippsland region in Traralgon on Thursday this week to come together as a union community affected by the announcement on native timber harvesting to discuss the impacts this has on their ongoing work and the local impacts in their rural communities.
Come to the BBQ this Thursday.
Where: Newman Park, Traralgon

What do they tell their families, partners, children? Their mental health and well-being are being impacted from this extended uncertainty.
The bulk of VicForests staff are based in regional Victoria where they are part of the fabric of their communities as volunteers with sports clubs, schools, kinders, the CFA, VicSES, and other community groups”.
As members of Forests Fire Management Victoria they have been on the front line protecting their communities in events such as the 2019-2020 Black Summer and 2009 Black Saturday bushfires.
VicForests staff are highly trained as foresters and ecologists, having completed a broad range of qualifications and decades of experience in Victorian native forests developing harvesting strategies, conducting ecological surveys, regeneration and building strong relationships with their communities.
