Dear Brother and Sisters,
You will be aware that our members in Merseyside have voted by an overwhelming majority in favour of Strike Action against the cuts in fire cover and personnel proposed by their Fire Authority (71.4% yes vote on an 81% turn out).
Our officials and members are clear that this will be a very long and hard struggle and members and branches are urged to make donations and organise regular collections to assist our members in their fight against these cuts.
The details for the hardship fund are provided below:
