Essex firefighters strike over pension reforms
11:59am Sunday 15th December 2013 in News
Firefighters across Essex went on strike twice this weekend as part of an ongoing row about pensions.
Members of the Fire Brigade Union from across the county walked out between 6pm and 10pm on Friday and Saturday night.
The industrial action was part of a national dispute over government pension reforms.
Resilience crews were called in to help cover the area during the strike period, but there were no major incidents in the Colchester area.
