Essex firefighters launch ballot

Issue No. 2155

Firefighters in the FBU union in Essex are to ballot for industrial action over plans to cut fire services in the county.

The first round of cuts includes axing 44 frontline posts – one in ten of the Essex firefighters.

The cuts will mean leaving only enough firefighters on duty to crew one of the two specialist engines at a time.
