On Monday 25 February, the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, will be holding a budget meeting at City Hall, at which his attempts to save £45m by shutting 12 fire stations, removing 18 engines and slashing 520 firefighter posts will be discussed.
The mayor’s opponents have organised a protest, which will take place outside City Hall from 8.45am. (The budget meeting starts at 10.00am, and members of the public are entitled to go inside and view proceedings.)
The FBU is supporting the protest, and we encourage members to attend. It is important that the mayor sees the huge level of opposition to his plans to decimate London’s fire service.
