News release text
The Fire Brigades Union has announced today (24 April) that firefighters in England, Scotland and Wales will take part in further industrial action over pensions on the following dates: 
 
English and Welsh firefighters will strike on: 
 
Friday 2 May, between noon and 5pm 
Saturday 3 May, between 2pm and 2am 
Sunday 4 May, between 10am and 3pm. 
There will also be a ban on voluntary overtime across England and Wales from 3pm on Sunday 4 May until noon on Friday 9 May. 
 
This is a national dispute between the Government and the FBU over pensions. Kent Fire and Rescue Service (KFRS) is not involved in the negotiations although the walkout will affect fire and rescue services in Kent and Medway. Contingency plans will be put in place.
