Give us back our fire engines

Issue No. 2239

London’s firefighters are demanding their bosses return 27 fire engines that were confiscated during their strikes last year.

Bosses claimed the fire engines would be returned as soon as the dispute with the FBU union ended.

But even though the union signed a formal agreement on new shift patterns on Friday and ended the dispute, the fire engines are still missing.

They are being held at a secret location by strikebreaking private firm AssetCo.
