Absolutely delighted that fire-fighters had accepted* the offer was the reaction from the Convention of Scottish Local Authorities.

President Pat Watters said: 'I am absolutely delighted. It is a giant step forward.

'There remains a lot of hard work ahead in driving forward the modernisation agenda but it will be done together. I look forward to focussing our energies on delivering a modern fire service with associated pay increases.

'You always have a chance to solve things when you are talking and working together and the sooner we get on with the work that still needs to be done then the sooner pay increases get to fire-fighters.

'Seven per cent was negotiated and that is what they are entitled to. Working together we can deliver it. I can assure them that as far as we are concerned there will be no blocks in the way of this commitment.'
