The Welsh Government says it is working with fire and rescue authorities and the UK Government to minimise the impact of this weekend's strike.
– Welsh Government spokesperson
Firefighter pensions are devolved to Welsh Ministers under the Fire and Rescue Services Act 2004; however our ability to diverge from the UK-wide arrangements is limited by HM Treasury policy.
Welsh Ministers have regularly met the FBU regarding pension issues and we have been clear on our commitment to public service pension schemes which are affordable, sustainable and fair to all public service workers.
The Fire Brigades' Union stated its intention to seek further dialogue with Ministers to resolve the dispute over pensions. Our discussions with the FBU have been positive and constructive.
