Firefighters’ strike postponed as union votes over new pay offer

News / Thu 9th Feb 2023 at 08:25am

STRIKE action by firefighters has been put on hold while union members consider an increased pay offer.

During talks on Tuesday, fire service employers put forward a revised offer, which includes a 7% pay rise backdated to July last year and another 5% from this July.

The Fire Brigades Union (FBU) will now ballot members on the deal. 

More than 80% of members who voted in a ballot in December backed strike action. 

If they had gone ahead, they would have been the first UK-wide fire strikes over pay since 2003.

Wow 12% pay rise nice work when you can extort the tax payer I am sure all those struggling to pay increased council tax bills will be happy.
