Members of the GMB and Unison unions in the London Fire Authority have called a lobby of a meeting of their employer that will consider cuts in the organisation’s budget next week.
The politicians that run the authority are considering proposals to slash up to £9.2 million from the budget in 2009-10. The cuts could mean as many as 90 jobs going.
The cuts are part of London mayor Boris Johnson’s attacks on the services provided by the Greater London Authority.
A mass meeting of GMB members last week voted to support a joint union campaign against the cuts. The firefighter FBU union’s London regional committee is backing the lobby and sending a delegation with its banner.
Stop the cuts lobby of the fire authority, Thursday 20 November, 1.30pm at London Fire Authority meeting, City Hall, Queens Walk London SE1
