The Fire Brigades Union has announced three more strikes over Christmas and New Year.

They are Christmas Eve from 7pm to midnight, New Years Eve from 6.30pm - 12.30am and Friday January 3 from 6.30am to 8.30am

The strike is part of a national dispute between the FBU and government over the reforms to the Firefighters’ Pension Scheme.

Suffolk’s chief fire officer Mark Hardingham, said: “As with the previous six strikes we will be implementing our contingency arrangements to deliver a reduced service over the strike periods.

“Our aim is to continue to protect the people who live, work and visit Suffolk. I very much hope that the government and FBU are able to resolve this dispute soon in order that the Service can return to business as usual.”
