The national retained committee advises the union’s executive council on matters affecting the conditions of employment and related negotiations of members working as retained firefighters.
It is also responsible for advising the executive council on the organisation and recruitment of retained firefighters into the union.
The committee is made up of one retained firefighter from each of the FBU’s regions (excluding London who have no retained firefighters), each elected by other retained members from his or her region, a chair and a secretary, who are elected by a national ballot of retained members.
The national retained committee organises an annual general meeting for officer members.
