The dispute over the firefighters’ pensions drags on. Fire Brigades Union (FBU) members were taking strike action on 9 December over government proposals that will force firefighters to work until they are 60 instead of 55, pay more into their pensions and get less in retirement. This month strike was the 48th period of industrial action since the pensions row began well over a year ago. The last strike lasted four days, the longest period of industrial action firefighters have taken in at least 10 years.
