The Fire Brigades Union has expressed opposition to a proposal by Tories on the London Assembly to withdraw free travel benefits from the families of Transport for London (TfL) workers and give them to firefighters instead.
A motion from the Tory group calling for the switch will be tabled at a meeting of the assembly today.
Paul Embery, secretary of the FBU in London, said: â€œThere is a strong case for giving free travel benefits to firefighters however we are not prepared to betray our colleagues on the transport network.
â€œInstead of pitting one group of workers against another the Tories should show respect for all those who work hard in the service of Londoners.
â€œThe FBU doesn’t play divide and rule.â€
