At the request of ACAS, the UK fire employers today agreed to brief ACAS on their views on modernisation and pay for the fire service. This will be purely exploratory, with a possible view of brokering discussions. It will not mean ACAS mediating or arbitrating on the dispute.

Employers will be reiterating their opinion for the need for significant modernisation of the service, in exchange for any increase in pay. The meeting will focus on process, involving all parties. After the first meeting with ACAS, there will be a report back to the fire employers. In the meantime, the employers continue to work on a detailed set of proposals for modernisation and pay.
