FBU MAKES 'RIGHT MOVE', SAYS TUC

Commenting on the FBU's suspension of strike action*, TUC general secretary John Monks said:

'This is the right move by FBU, and shows sound strategic sense by its executive. It puts the pressure on the employers and government to come up with an offer that can start real negotiations. The suspension of the strike, and the involvement of ACAS, will help provide the right atmosphere to get talks going again.'

T&G WELCOMES SUSPENSION OF FIREFIGHTERS' STRIKE

Commenting on the decision by the Fire Brigades Union to suspend strike action due to start on Wednesday to allow exploratory talks at ACAS*, Bill Morris general secretary of the Transport and General Workers' Union said:

'I welcome the initiative by the FBU in accepting ACAS' invitation in a pause for peace. We look to all sides to make a significant effort in finding a negotiated settlement.'
