Firefighters ballot for strike action against 'free for all' contracts

The Fire Brigades Union has released a video update about the industrial dispute in the West Midlands where members are currently balloting for strike action about the imposition of contracts that would see new recruits take on work outside the agreed role of a firefighter.

In this video Andrew Scattergood from the FBU in the West Midlands and Matt Wrack, the union’s general secretary, discuss the dispute and urge members to take part in the ballot before it closes on the 29th May 2018.
