Response to strike ballot result

14 October 2010

Responding to the result of a ballot by the FBU in London, Chairman of the London Fire and Emergency Planning Authority, Brian Coleman said: “It’s disappointing and saddening that the only losers in all of this will be firefighters. A strike by the FBU will be unnecessary, unjustified and viewed unsympathetically by Londoners. This dispute centres on proposed changes to make people safer.”

London Fire Commissioner Ron Dobson said: “Our contingency plans will of course now move forward to ensure the capital is protected during any period of strike action by the FBU.”
