Strikes: Fire Brigade Union announces four-day industrial action


Striking firefighters will leave their posts for four days as the row over pensions with the government rumbles on.

From 6pm on Halloween to 6pm on Tuesday, November 4, fire crews will take industrial action - despite it being the weekend of the city’s firework display in Campbell Park.

As the Fire Brigades Union announced further strike dates, Bucks Fire & Rescue Service said: “Emergency calls where lives are at risk will be prioritised.”

The service confirmed plans are in place to provide an emergency response in Bucks and Milton Keynes during periods of industrial action.

A spokesman said: “Bucks Fire & Rescue Service will continue to provide information before, during and after strike periods to help people avoid having a fire or other emergency.

“The information is designed to help you stay safe all year round.”
