Fire engines returned as dispute called off
Brent London Assembly member Navin Shah welcomes the news
TWENTY-SEVEN fire engines taken out of service during strikes have been returned to their stations, London Fire Brigade has confirmed.
The emergency vehicles were taken out of stations and held by private contractor AssetCo during the recent dispute over shift patterns.
The Fire Brigade Union officially called off the strike on Friday.
Two fire engines will be returned to North Kensington fire station.
Brent and Harrow London Assembly Member Navin Shah said: “I very much welcome the negotiated settlement that has been reached and the ending of this long and damaging dispute.
“The safety of Londoners is paramount. Now that the strike action is lifted Londoners will have their missing 27 fire engines, currently in the possession of private contractor AssetCo. No doubt Londoners will be as relieved as I am. We have waited a long time to hear this excellent news.”
