Tipperary Retained Firefighters To Strike A Further Two Days


Retained firefighters in Tipperary are to take a further two days of strike action, beginning today.

The strike is an escalation in the industrial dispute between the retained firefighters and council in recent months.

Unite says firefighters have seen retainers and call-out fees “frozen for years”.

The union is also seeking “structured and predictable ‘off-call’ times, rather than — as is currently the reality — operating on a 24/7 basis”.

Unite is calling on the Local Government Management Agency to sit down with them and the workers to resolve this dispute.
