Discussing an electoral challenge to service cutters

On 18 January the general secretary of the FBU firefighters' union, Matt Wrack, visited Rugby fire station.

Subjects discussed included pensions, job losses, cuts and the general undermining of the service. Though the content was quite bleak, he delivered an uplifting speech which urged members to stick together.

Warwickshire FBU are considering putting up candidates in the local elections to stand against county councillors who voted to close fire stations after expressing support for the firefighters at those stations.

Warwickshire FBU hope to be able to work with other unions and groups and raise awareness of the threat that the Tory councillors' policies of cutting vital services poses to the people of Warwickshire.

Steve Roberts, Chair Warwickshire FBU
