Overtime ban, but no fire strike here

FIREFIGHTERS in Scotland will refuse to do voluntary overtime between May 2 to 9.

Crews in England and Wales will stage three strikes and an overtime ban in early May, as they continue their dispute with the UK Government over pensions. In Scotland, strike action was rejected after members voted to accept a pensions offer from the Scottish Government.
