Firefighters in Beverley to go on strike over pensions



Have your say

Firefighters in the East Riding area will take part in further industrial action over pensions, the Fire Brigades Union announced.

The fire crews will strike today between noon and 5pm, Saturday between 2pm and 2am, and Sunday between 10am and 3pm.

There will also be a ban on voluntary overtime across the region from 3pm on Sunday 4 May until noon on Friday 9 May as part of the national action. Chief Fire Officer Dene Sanders, commenting on the impending action, said: “We have confidence in our robust plans that will enable us to provide an emergency response service and those plans proved successful during the last period of strike action. However the service will be reduced from what we can ordinarily provide and what the public expect.”
