The Employment Court today heard the Unions application for a declaration that the industrial action is lawful and that the bargaining process agreement has been complied with.

The Court also heard the Fire Service application for an injunction to restrain the industrial action.

The hearing lasted the full day, 10am to 4.30pm, with the Judge reserving his decision.

The Judge indicated that he would make every effort to provide his decision by 5pm on Friday and given the strong indication from the Judge that he would want to maintain the status quo until his decision was delivered, the Union extended its undertaking not to commence industrial action until 8am Saturday, 9 July 2011.

Further details will be provided tomorrow.
