Firefighters to strike again
Firefighters today announced that a fourth strike over pensions will take place between 10am and 2pm on Wednesday, November 13, in England and Wales.

The Fire Brigades Union (FBU) also announced the start of a further ballot for other forms of industrial action, which will close on Wednesday, December 4.

Matt Wrack, the FBU general secretary, said: "Our members enter burning buildings for a living, and will not be intimidated by the government's decision to worsen their proposals."

He said union members have said they 'are prepared for a long, hard campaign if necessary'.
