New FBU strike dates announced

24 April 2014

The Fire Brigades Union (FBU) has announced today (Thursday 24 April) that its members will be taking further strike action in early May as part of a continued dispute with government over changes to pensions.

The dates and times announced are as follows:

Fri 2 May 12.00 – 17.00
Sat 3 May 14.00 – 02.00
Sun 4 May 10.00 – 15.00

Chief Fire Officer Dene Sanders commented: “We have confidence in our robust plans that will enable us to provide an emergency response service and those plans proved successful during the last period of strike action. However the service will be reduced from what we can ordinarily provide and what the public expect.”

More information will follow as it becomes available.
