Derbyshire firefighters to strike over eight days

Firefighters in Derbyshire are to strike over eight consecutive days in an ongoing row with the Government, the Fire Brigades’ Union (FBU) has announced.

The FBU said “unsafe and unrealistic” proposals will see firefighters working longer and having their pensions cut.

But the Government’s new fire minister, Penny Mordaunt, said industrial action was “counterproductive”.

The strikes will take place from 12pm and 2pm and 10.59pm and 11.59pm between Saturday, AUgust 9 and Saturday, August 16.

According to the FBU, union members have already staged walk outs over 24 days since September last year.

Firefighters have gone on strike for more than 160 hours, the FBU added.
