FBU logoThe FBU is urging trade unionists to sign a petition against the privatisation of the fire service.

The 38 Degrees campaign has launched the petition stating: “Please stop your plans to open up our firs service to privatisation, which you are trying to do through the back door. Our fire service is precious and we won’t forgive you if you let profit come before saving people’s lives.”

FBU general secretary Matt Wrack said: “I would strongly urge all members to support this petition. Please circulate the details to your friends, family and colleagues in whatever ways you can find to do so. Everyone can play a role in the fight to defend our service.”
