Firefighters in England and Wales will join hundreds of thousands of other public sector workers taking strike action on Thursday July 10, the Fire Brigades Union has announced.

The long-running dispute over firefighters’ pensions will see a further day of strikes at the same time as a walk out by local government workers, teachers and civil servants over a range of issues, including attacks on pay and pensions and workloads.

The strike will last between 10am and 7pm and will be the fifteenth in the FBU’s campaign. The union is also expected to announce further action later this week.
