We need to Unite the Resistance but fire fighters strike called off

The planned Fire Brigades Union strike for today (Saturday 19 October) has been called off.

Please see below for a statement from the London FBU.

London FBU statement

At a meeting…the FBU’s executive council (EC) voted to cancel tomorrow night’s planned strike of all firefighters in England and Wales.
We can confirm that the trade dispute on pensions remains live, and no offer has been received from government that the EC considers is worthy of recommendation to FBU members.
Given this, it is inevitable that the EC’s decision will lead to some disquiet and a great many questions from members. The London regional committee will meet on Monday morning to discuss its response to this unexpected development. Further information will be published in due course.
For the record, we can confirm that the executive council member for London voted against the proposal to cancel the strike.
Yours in unity
LONDON FBU

Firefighters will be speaking at the Unite the Resistance Conference today. Reports to follow.

In solidarity

South London Unite the Resistance
