FBU wins its landmark pensions case – Karen Lee responds

Karen Lee MP, Labour’s Shadow Fire Minister, responding to the FBU winning its landmark pensions case, said:

“Labour congratulates the FBU on its brilliant pensions victory.

“The coalition government failed to recognise the highly demanding responsibilities placed on firefighters throughout their careers, and created a discriminatory two-tier workforce, with increased expectations on younger firefighters.

“Our dedicated firefighters deserve a pension scheme that properly rewards them for their service.”
