Firefighters’ strike postponed as union votes over new pay offer

STRIKE action by firefighters has been put on hold while union members consider an increased pay offer.

During talks on Tuesday, fire service employers put forward a revised offer, which includes a 7% pay rise backdated to July last year and another 5% from this July.

The Fire Brigades Union (FBU) will now ballot members on the deal. 

More than 80% of members who voted in a ballot in December backed strike action. 

If they had gone ahead, they would have been the first UK-wide fire strikes over pay since 2003.
