FBU protest

Firefighters and emergency control operators in the West Midlands will ballot for strikes over the imposition of new contracts.
West Midlands Fire Authority has introduced new contracts which mean new firefighters entering the service will have to take on work outside the currently agreed role of a firefighter, as well as giving employers the right to unilaterally change the work of firefighters at any time.

Fire Brigades Union (FBU) members are also concerned about the increasing imposition of non-fire service work, dictatorial management practices and interference with trade union activities.

The FBU will begin balloting members in the week Solidarity goes to press (30 April).
