Given the recent appalling and threatening commentary from the Victorian Secretary of the CFMEU, John Setka, the AFLUA wishes to again declare its support for Stephen McBurney’s appointment to the AFL’s Head of Officiating role.

The AFLUA represents both AFL and AFLW umpires across Australia and negotiates terms and conditions with the AFL for these umpires. Integrity and respect are our key values. Throughout Stephen’s distinguished and dedicated AFL umpiring career, he always displayed those attributes. 

In the AFLUA’s dealings and negotiations with the AFL, any differences of opinion are managed in a positive, respectful, and civil manner. With Steve as Head of Officiating, we have every confidence this relationship will continue for the betterment of umpiring.
