Further to the information as advised in Newsletter No. 36 – 30 September, the Union and Fire Service Bargaining Teams met again on Thursday 1 October 2009.

At the completion of that meeting the Fire Service provided the Union with their best offer for a C.A. Settlement.

The Committee considered this at a meeting this morning.

The Committee determined:

  • To bring the offer out to members for discussion and balloting.

  • To recommend the offer be rejected.

As active bargaining is now complete, the Committee has also determined that the suspended strike action will recommence from 0800 hours this Monday 5 October 2009.

Strike action as was being taken at the time of suspension will therefore resume at 0800 hours Monday 5 October 2009.

The Committee has also determined to lodge further Notice of Strike Action as detailed in Newsletter No. 35 – 24 September 09, to take effect from 0800 hours on 17 October 2009.

Member meetings are being organized and members will be advised of details as soon as possible.

A comprehensive Newsletter is also being prepared with full details of the Fire Service’s best offer and this will be distributed for members’ information as soon as possible.
