Message of Support

NWPC logoi ii

The Northwest Probation & CAFCASS branch of UNISON send its support to the Fire Brigades Union as they take industrial action today against the governments proposals that could mean mass sackings as thousands of fire fighters become older and are no longer fit enough to do the job. Fire fighters, who already pay some of the highest contributions in the public or private sector, would also be expected to pay an average of 13.2% of their salary and would have one of the worst ratios of contributions between employer and employee.

We urge our members to show their support on the day and for Manchester based staff to join us at Manchester Central Fire Station S16, Thompson Street Manchester M4 5FP at 12noon on the 25th September
