FIRE FIGHTERS CONSIDER NEXT STAGE OF CAMPAIGN AGAINST PAY LIMIT

The fire brigades union will today consider the next stage of its campaign against the government's 1.5% public sector pay limit, BBC Radio Four's Today programme reported this morning.

Local authority employers have told fire fighters their longstanding pay formula will be reinstated next year, whatever the government's pay policy. But FBU general secretary Ken Cameron said on the programme he expected today's meeting would not be satisfied with that.

If there is no better offer at the union's next meeting with the employers on 24 September, fire fighters would be balloted on strike action, he said.

The union will also be delivering a petition with 250,000 signatures to Downing Street, protesting against the pay restrictions and possible job losses in the fire service.
