Firefighters strike again in ongoing pensions dispute

Firefighters in Wales and England will strike for the fifth and sixth time this weekend in an ongoing dispute with the Government over pensions.

Members of the Fire Brigades Union will walk out for four hours - from 6pm until 10pm tonight, and tomorrow night.

They have already been on strike four times since September.

The Union accused the Government of 'ignoring' concerns about increasing pension contributions.

They also fear firefighters will lose their jobs if they fail fitness tests because of the raised pension age.
