Description

28 May BBC TV report as Politicians in Devon & Somerset Fire Authority today confirmed an incredible pay rise of £8,639 to their Chief Fire Officer, who made massive cuts to the frontline service in 2013. Firefighters, who have had their pay frozen or capped at 1% for the last 5yrs have slammed the "award" with FBU rep Trevor French saying: "The Fire Authority justification seems to be that to get the best person for the job, you need to pay the right amount of money. I would ask the authority to consider giving the people who risk their lives on a daily basis and run into burning buildings to save lives the right amount of money." So much for "all in this together"! FBU = fighting for the frontline!
