I was a fire fighter for 30 yrs, and it was only through strike action in 77 that the Fire Brigades union was successful in getting an increase in pay to match the upper quartile of blue collar workers. Pension contributions are through the roof, it is nothing to be paying 14% towards their pension. It is an absolute disgrace that MPs got an 11% rise in time of austerity. It is now time they had to take a pay freeze for 7 years while other catch up.
