FBU CALLS FRESH STRIKES

Firefighters in England and Wales will strike again after the government failed to make proposals sufficient to resolve the ongoing dispute over pensions. Three strikes were called following a meeting of the FBU’s executive council today (Thursday).

The first strike, lasting five hours, will take place between 1200-1700 hours on 2 May; the second, a 12-hour strike, between 1400 hours and 0200 hours on 3-4 May; and the third, a five-hour strike, between 1000-1500 hours on 4 May.

All FBU members (with the exception of Control staff) are expected to take part in the strike action.

Additionally, the union announced that action short-of-a-strike would take place as follows.

A ban on voluntary overtime across England and Wales from 1501 hours on 4 May to 1200 hours on 9 May.

A ban on voluntary overtime in Scotland from 1200 hours on 2 May to 1200 hours on 9 May.

Again, all FBU members (with the exception of Control) are expected to take part in the action short-of-a-strike.

We would remind members of the strike protocols agreed by the London regional committee, which can be found here: http://www.london.fbu.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/1051.pdf

A full statement from the general secretary will be issued in due course. The executive council will reconvene on 8 May.

Yours in unity

LONDON FBU
