Firefighters took industrial action today across the country over the government’s proposals on pensions. Members of the FBU walked out at 6.30pm and will take further action on Monday morning, from 6am – 8am. There was a solid response at Radford Fire Station with a good picket despite the pouring rain. Many motorists beeped their horns in support.

The FBU action follows on from the university strike yesterday, with probation officers due to strike on Tuesday and Wednesday of next week. Once again the question of co-ordinating the action needs to be put on the agenda.
