The Government has criticised the looming firefighters strike as they have "one of the best pensions in the public sector", according to one minister.
Fire Minister Brandon Lewis said:
Firefighters will still have one of the best pensions in the public sector.
New principles on fitness are already on the table with our backing and following a formal public consultation we have decided to make small changes to the scheme which allow us to improve the pension offer for firefighters who retire at age 55 or 56 so they are fairly rewarded, while those who work longer will rightly benefit for doing so.
