Rugby Against The Cuts have sent the following letter of support to striking fire fighters in London
Brothers and Sisters
Rugby Against The Cuts http://rugbyagainstthecuts.blogspot.com/ are sending you our support in your current struggle to defend the Fire Service in London.
Rugby is in Warwickshire and we have just seen a number of our local fire stations closed using similar arguments to those used in your dispute – modernisation is a buzz word that really means worse and unsafe conditions for not only fire fighters but also the general public.
You will be pleased to know that the local FBU is part of our campaign and we are proud to have such dedicated workers involved.
Good luck and best wishes
Roy Sandison Joint Trade Union Liaison Officer on behalf of Rugby Against The Cuts.
