FBU members on strike in Bristol, November 2014

by Tim Lezard

Firefighters in England have returned to work after four days of strike action against government pension plans.

FBU general secretary Matt Wrack said: “Firefighters have shown great solidarity and been given a magnificent reception by the public who understand they are fighting for a fair and affordable pension.

“We are now asking the public to support firefighters by lobbying their MP’s to sign EDM 454 in order to get a House of Commons debate on firefighters’ pension and hold this government to account for their actions.

“Firefighters will return to work tonight with their heads held high knowing that the public support them in this ongoing dispute.”
