INDUSTRIAL ACTION : PENSIONS IN THE FIRE SERVICE
Call for industrial action
Members have been informed of the result of the ballot for industrial action consisting of a strike.
As the person authorised to make the call for industrial action, I now confirm that this discontinuous strike action will commence and terminate at the times and on the dates specified below:
Commencing 13th December 2013 at 18:00hrs until 13th December 2013 at 22:00hrs
Commencing 14th December 2013 at 18:00hrs until 14th December 2013 at 22:00hrs
These are the dates/times which have been determined upon. We hope the matter will then be resolved. If not, further dates in respect of this ongoing strike action will be notified once determined. Members in England and Wales (except control members*) are now called upon to take discontinuous strike action at and not earlier than the dates and times specified above and on any further dates to be so notified.
*NB Control member includes those who have been transferred from control duties but remain eligible for the same pension schemes as control members.
