Deeside firefighters expected to strike from 7pm Christmas Eve
Firefighters in Deeside will join other colleagues in Wales and England and walk out on strike between 7pm and midnight tonight (Christmas Eve) in their long running dispute with the government over pensions.
The strike will mean a reduction in the resources that the fire and rescue service has at its disposal and, as a consequence, the Service will not be able to provide the same high level of response to fires and other emergencies that it normally would. The priority will be to respond to life critical incidents.
North Wales Fire and Rescue Service has arrangements in place to continue to provide a service during strike action” but warned that, “because of the circumstances, services may be limited.
The Service’s business continuity arrangements will ensure a speedy and safe return to normal services on conclusion of any period of industrial action.
