London fire dispute

Submitted by Matthew on 12 January, 2011 - 3:29

An agreement to end the London firefighters’ dispute over shifts is due to be signed on 13 January.

In December, FBU members voted by 84% on a 58% turnout for new shift patterns of 10.5 days/13.5 nights, one of the options arising from the fire service arbitration process RAP. A London Fire and Emergency Planning Authority meeting on 13 January was expected to agree the basis of a settlement, although some issues from the dispute are not resolved and Tory chair Brian Coleman has continued to look for ways to attack firefighters. There are more battles ahead for the capital's firefighters and the FBU.
