A battle is brewing in Victoria between different arms of the firefighting services, with the Country Fire Authority demanding that the state government resist the United Firefighters Union’s bid to gain control of CFA decisions. State Emergency Services Minister Jane Garrett is with the CFA, pitting her against Premier Daniel Andrews. Now a website called handsofftheCFA is gaining traction with a petition aimed at Andrews. A tipster pointed out to Crikey that the site is not run by the CFA, but is authorised by the Victorian Liberals.
