The Fire Brigades Union (FBU) is the voice of firefighters and the fire and rescue service in the UK.
The Fire Brigades Union is divided into 13 regions. Each region contains several Fire Brigades. Cheshire falls into Region 5 along with Merseyside, Greater Manchester, Lancashire, Cumbria and the Isle of Man.
The FBU represents over 85% of the uniformed staff of the UK fire and rescue service. Our members are frontline public service workers – covering the roles of firefighter to area manager, including emergency fire control staff and firefighters working the retained duty system.
The FBU is the only recognised trade union negotiating nationally with fire and rescue service employers on behalf of firefighters and emergency fire control staff on the National Joint Council (NJC).
FireFighter magazine is an FBU publication, written by members for members. The magazine is published around nine times a year and features wide ranging articles.
If it matters to the fire and rescue service it will be covered. It also features competitions and all firefighters favorite the Station Cat. Now available for download just as it looks in print. read more..
