More strike action for fire service

Have your say

Firefighters have agreed on a further eight-day period of industrial action.

The Fire Brigades’ Union will strike against proposals in England and Wales which would mean firefighters will face dismissal because they cannot maintain the physical fitness requirements necessary for their role until they are 60.

The proposals would also mean that if firefighters opt for early retirement, the reduction in their pension would be ‘unacceptably high’.
