FIRE SERVICE PRIVATISATION: ON-LINE PETITION
As part of the FBU campaign to defend our Service from cuts and privatisation we have been meeting and
discussing with other campaigning organisations. The austerity measures of the government are prompting
opposition across a range of issues and this is uniting hundreds of thousands of people through various
local and national campaigns.
We have discussed various Fire and Rescue Service issues with the campaigning group 38 Degrees.
This is a very helpful initiative by 38 Degrees in support of our Service and the work our members
undertake. It demonstrates the support we can build at local and national level.
Their campaign site can be viewed at:
This includes an on-line petition on the Fire and Rescue Service:
I would strongly urge all members to support this petition. Please circulate the details to your friends, family
and colleagues in whatever ways you can find to do so.
Please remember, everyone can play a role in the fight to defend our Service.
