London Fire Brigade Union Strike
Picture is from Euston Fire Station. London fire-fighters have taken their 2nd day of strike action against the attempt by Boris Johnson to change their shift patterns by threatening to dismiss them all and “re-engage” on inferior terms and conditions.
Fire-fighters to not take strike action at all lightly and have been forced into action by the provocation of their employers. An overwhelming majority of fire-fighters voted in a secret ballot and an overwhelming majority voted in favour of strike action. If the threat to dismiss is called off then the strikes would be suspended.
The next strike will take place on November 5-7th. Check out this leaflet being distributed to members of the public.
