Thanks for your note – sorry for the delay in responding.   I have no ambitions to take over the fire service and advised this to Matt Wrack in a brief conversation the other day, after the Workers memorial day service in Hartlepool, which I have attended every year since elected PCC in 2012.    That said, I am interested in discussions with fire service and other public services re how we could collaborate more closely as public sector partners for the benefit of the public in today’s climate of reducing resources and increasing demands.

In Cleveland, we have a Tory candidate who proposes more cuts, in the context of value for money and efficiency, and UKIP and Independent candidates proposing false and misleading claims about putting more police on the streets without any idea or strategy as to how to pay for them.    I have a track record of 28 years as a Labour councillor, delivering services and helping thousands of people in our communities.  The last 3 ½ years as a Labour PCC, which includes being one of the first Living Wage PCCs in the country, protecting neighbourhood policing, and developing better services for victims.   I would welcome your support in the election next Thursday 5th May

The removal of this right is not simply about modernising, as the Tory government would have us believe, it is a significant and deliberate threat to silence working people. Read More

Management Proposal Local Agreement No. 20 Three Watch Duty System:

Dear Ian,

You will recall that in October 2015 Cleveland FBU’s proposed referral of Cleveland Fire Brigade Management’s proposal ‘3 Watch Duty System’ to the NJC was suspended whilst CFBU and CFB discussed any improvements and changes to the proposals brought by Management (ref. letters/emails FBU-CFO/CFO-FBU 16th Oct 2015) to our meeting 23rd October 2015.
