Derbyshire firefighters to go on strike on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve
By Derby Telegraph | Posted: December 17, 2013
FIREFIGHTERS from Derbyshire will be among those to go on strike on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve – and will launch a ban on overtime in an escalation of their long-running dispute with the Government over pensions.
Members of the Fire Brigades Union (FBU) in England and Wales will walk out for five hours from 7pm on December 24, for six hours from 6.30pm on December 31 and for two hours from 6.30am on January 3.
FBU members in Scotland will also join the industrial action for the first time since the row flared, by joining a ban on overtime.
Between 7pm on December 27 and 7pm on the 29th, all firefighters in the union across England, Wales and Scotland will refuse to work voluntary overtime.
