Devon and Somerset fire strike postponed
10:05am Friday 25th October 2013 in Devon
A PLANNED strike by Devon and Somerset firefighters which was due to take place last weekend has been postponed.
Members of the Fire Brigades Union across Somerset were set to carry out industrial action for five hours between 6.30pm and 11.30pm on Saturday, October 19.
The action was due to take place in reaction to the Government’s plans to increase the firefighters’ pension age to 60, but it is believed that productive talks between the two sides has seen the FBU call off the strike.
