Fire and Rescue Service Strike Action

The Fire Brigades Union (FBU) has announced its intention to carry out industrial action over the course of the month.


The strikes will take place during the following periods;

Thursday 10 July 2014 starting at 10am until 7pm. 

In addition - Firefighters in England and Wales will also strike on eight consecutive days this month.
These strikes will take place:

• Monday 14 July: 6am–8am and 5pm–7pm
• Tuesday 15 July: 6am–8am and 5pm–7pm
• Wednesday 16 July: 6am–8am and 5pm–7pm
• Thursday 17 July: 6am–8am and 5pm–7pm
• Friday 18 July: 6am–8am and 11pm–1am on Saturday 19 July
• Saturday 19 July: 11am–1pm and 11pm–1am on Sunday 20 July
• Sunday 20 July: 5pm–7pm
• Monday 21 July: 6am–8am and 5pm–7pm

WYFRS will continue to provide emergency fire and rescue cover during any strike though the level of response may be more limited than at other times. The emergency crews attending may have fewer specialist skills and may not be familiar with the incident site or local geography.

Therefore, colleagues are requested to be extra vigilant during this and any subsequent period of industrial action, in addition to continuing to follow normal procedures. As ever, our focus is on prevention rather than reaction.
