Firefighters strike over national changes to pensions ends
FIREFIGHTERS have ended their four hour strike over national changes to pensions.
The strike took place across England and Wales - including in Herefordshire - today from midday to 4pm.
Members of the Fire Brigades Union (FBU) are campaigning against changes it says will force firefighters to work longer, pay more into their pensions and receive less in retirement.
The move will also see firefighters having to work on frontline duties until they are 60 which could put the public at risk, the union argues.
