  • Email East Sussex Fire Authority to demand they stop fire and rescue cuts
    Thanks to everyone who supported our campaign, East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service were forced to rethink the cuts and put forward new proposals. These proposals have now been accepted by the fire authority. Under the new plan, four fire engines have been saved and a number of stations will retain whole-time firefighters for day-time fire cover seven days a week. The service has also been forced to change plans which would have seen huge numbers of firefighter posts cut. Together, we’ve helped to keep East Sussex residents safe.

  • Don't cut fire services in Devon and Somerset
    On 10 January, Devon and Somerset Fire Authority voted on the proposed cuts to Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service. Thanks to tireless campaigning from our members and supporters, we saved 6 stations from closure, over 100 jobs, and stopped three whole-time stations open 24-hours a day from being downgraded to day-crewed stations. We also stopped the third fire engines at Bridgwater, Taunton, Torquay and Yeovil stations from being removed entirely, which will now be replaced by an alternative vehicle. Unfortunately some of the cuts were still pushed through - such as the closure of Budleigh Salterton station – but we’re proud of what we’ve achieved.

  • #ONENHS: Fair pay for Compass hospital workers
    We are hospital support staff working for Compass in St Helens & Knowsley and Blackpool NHS Trusts. We keep hospitals clean, cook for patients and keep them safe. We are paid over £1000 less per year and have worse terms & conditions than some of our colleagues who do the same jobs. That's why we are standing together for fair pay and fair treatment. #ONENHS, nobody left out.
