Have your say: Do you think firefighters should go out on strike?
9:30am Wednesday 25th September 2013 in News
Firefighters from across Sussex will go out on strike today over a row on pensions.
The issue surrounds an ongoing dispute in which union officials claim their members could be dismissed without a proper pension if they are unable to pass standard fitness tests before the age of 60.
But Fire Minister Brandon Lewis described the action as “unnecessary and avoidable” and said the pension on offer to staff IS “one of the most generous public service pensions available”.
We want to know what you think.
Are the firefighters right to walk out on strike today?
Or is the Fire Minister right in branding it unnecessary?
