The FBU have suspended the action for over 7 months whist we allowed the Government to engage in “constructive talks” with the FBU in the hope of putting forward improvements on their offer for our members to consider. However despite this reasonable approach taken by our members the Government have not improved their offer but continue to treat our members with contempt and are stringing us along. Our members are livid and cannot accept that following 7 months of “talks” the government cannot put their proposals on the table so, we have now released 3 strike periods:

  • 2nd May 14:00 – 17:00hrs
  • 3rd May 14:00 – 02:00hrs (on the 4th)
  • 4th May 10:00 – 03:00hrs
