You should now be aware that the strike action in Merseyside has been suspended following a provisional agreement. Further work on this agreement is still under way, however local Officials and the Brigade Committee are hopeful that this will conclude the matter.
However you should be aware that Merseyside members have so far taken 25 full days strike action over 26 days and this has obviously caused and will cause financial difficulties for our members and their families. I therefore appeal to all members, Branches and Committees to continue to raise funds in support. These can be paid into the following account
