Essex Firefighters have called another strike day for July 18th. They are appealling for support from all members of the Labour and trade union movement. Come along to Chelmsford on the 18th!
Here is the appeal message sent out by the FBU:
Please see attached a poster for a demo against the cuts in Essex fire service where we have called a series of strikes.
The day in question is a 24hour strike day.
accept this as an invitation from the FBU to our sister trade unions
that their attendance alongside our Members would be welcomed and would
also help the resolve of our striking members.
Please can you circulate this through your contacts as far and wide as you can.
look forward to marching below the banner of the FBU and hope our
comrades in other unions will bring along their banners in solidarity
against these cuts and together send a message of opposition to the
managers and Fire Authority and not least the Government that we won't
accept these cuts without a fight.
