London FBU strike today

The Green Party Trade Union Group sent the following statement to the London Firebrigades Union regarding the industrial action today and on November 5th and 6th. I will be going to join the picket line at Lambeth Fire Station on Albert Embankment later today. Here is also a report from the Politics Show on the issues involved and refusal of London's Tories, in the person of Brian Coleman, to deal with the dispute.

I am sending you the support of the Green Party Trade Union Group who decided at our committee meeting to totally support the London fire strike and the struggle of the FBU against the draconian measures being introduced by the London Fire and Emergency Planning Authority and the threat of sackings. We stand
in solidarity with you and hope that your industrial action will bring the employers to the table for further negotiations and that they will end their attempts to settle this dispute under duress.

Members of the Green Party and Green Party Trade Union Group will be joining picket lines across London on November 1st and on the 5th and 6th of November.

In Solidarity

Joseph Healy


Green Party Trade Union Group
