The Fire Brigades Union's executive council has met today and have welcomed the constructive intervention by the chair of ACAS, Rita Donaghy, into the current fire service pay dispute.

The FBU executive council has today agreed to take part in exploratory talks with ACAS to look at means and mechanisms for a positive way forward.

As further proof of the non-political nature of this dispute on the part of the FBU, the executive council has taken the decision to suspend the eight-day strike due to commence at 9am on Wednesday 4 December.

Andy Gilchrist FBU general secretary said: 'We welcome the intervention of ACAS at this stage of the dispute and hope that all parties involved will grasp this opportunity to find a settlement agreeable to all parties concerned.'
