A scheduled meeting on pay negotiations with the state's firefighters union and the Department of Police and Emergency Services has been postponed due to industrial action.
The meeting was intended to take place on Tuesday but the department pulled out after receiving advice from the government.
United Firefighter Union state vice-president Leigh Hills said the decision was disappointing as the union had anticipated there might be a new offer on the table.
He said outside of the headline wages figure, there were other issues that needed to be dealt with so firefighters could continue to provide improved services to the community.
Mr Hills said staffing levels, skills and classifications and responses to events needed to be addressed.
He said there was no indication when the union would next meet with the department.
All public sector unions last week indicated they would escalate ongoing industrial action after they considered the government's revised wage offer was worse than the original offer.
