Firefighters across the region will today stage the first of a two-day walkout in their long-running dispute with the Government over proposed pension changes. The strike action, taking place today and tomorrow between 6pm and 10pm, marks the fifth and sixth times that members of the Fire Brigades' Union have hit the picket lines. The Government wants to raise firefighters' retirement age from 55 to 60 and to increase their individual pension contributions.
