Notts: Eight-day firefighter strike comes to an end, but industrial action will continue


Eight days of consecutive industrial strike action over pensions from firefighters in England and Wales came to an end earlier this week.

It has been suggested, however, that other forms of industrial action are going to continue on and at this point there is no planned end date.

From 7pm Monday night, until further notice, firefighters will not work voluntary overtime, non-contractual overtime or any additional voluntary hours.

Matt Wrack, FBU general secretary, said: “Firefighters have solidly observed the strike action; this hasn’t been easy for them or their families.”
