For over a year now firefighters have been striking against Coalition attacks on firefighters’ pensions and the reckless cuts to the Fire & Rescue Service – cuts happening nationwide, not just across Sussex.  Please stand together with firefighters as they take action again on Wednesday 25 February 2015.  Support picket lines outside fire stations in East and West Sussex.

Many FBU pickets across Sussex will be barely staffed as firefighters and supporters descend on central London for the FBU’s No More Lies rally and protest, after Tory Fire Minister Penny Mordaunt MP gave non-existent guarantees to secure MPs’ votes in the recent parliamentary debate on firefighters’ pensions.

No More Lies

FBU General Secretary Matt Wrack explains why firefighters are striking again: “Firefighters are justifiably angry with how this government is treating them.  MPs, the public and firefighters were completely misled and given a false guarantee in order to pass the legislation. This is wrong.”

Firefighter Paul Drinkwater has also caught the determination and mood of all firefighters in his brilliant beat poem.

We encourage you to support the FBU’s London rally if you can and, if not, to show solidarity with pickets at local firestations. We’re sure spirits will be high when firefighters return to picket lines tonight. The defence of firefighters’ pensions is the defence of our Fire Service. Stand together united!
