No change in firemen dispute

The dispute between the Gibraltar Government and the firemen of the City Fire Brigade remains deadlocked despite further contacts held yesterday between both sides.

A TGWU spokesman said failure to reach an agreement means “things remain as they were,” while the selective industrial action continues.

The talks with the Gibraltar Government were held to explain to the firemen the various permutations on offer by the administration which have been rejected by the TGWU.

The issue of pay differentials with fire contol operators and maintaining these, remains the point of contention, added the Union spokesman.
