    Swathes of the public sector have demanded inflation-plus pay rises of up to 30 퍼센트 – and threatened strikes that could wreck the summer and run through to 크리스마스 if their wishes are not met.

    The leader of the firefightersunion is warning of the first strikes since 2003 after reacting angrily to a two per cent pay offer.

    The news will compound fears that Britain is facing a summer of strikes as unions representing other professions also flex their muscles in pursuit of inflation-busting pay rises.

    Here are the areas of the public sector threatening to strike and what they are demanding:

    FIREFIGHTERS

    What pay rise do they want?

    Not yet clear. But the the Fire Brigades Union has rejected a two per cent pay offer because it is not near the 9.1 per cent rate of inflation.

    What is their average pay?

    A trainee firefighter earns £24,191 a year. A senior firefighter’s salary is £32,244.

    When could they strike?

    No ballot has been held yet

    What are the implications of strike?

    Strikes by firefighters are exceptionally rare.

    If a strike goes ahead, engines will be deployed at strategic locations across the UK to provide fire cover.

    The contingency fire service will be provided by a contractor, supplying basic firefighting and some rescue work. If there was a very serious incident, firefighters could choose to abandon their strike temporarily

    The FBU last organised a national strike in 2003. The last one before that since the 1970s.

    It began when the FBU voted to take strike action in an attempt to secure a better salary. The FBU demanded a 39 percent increase in pay. It ended in June 2003, with the firefighters accepting a pay deal worth 16 per cent over three years.

    중에서 2009 과 2021, firefightersreal pay has been cut by 12%, or nearly £4,000, the FBU said today, as they urged members to reject a 2% pay offer.

    Matt Wrack, FBU general secretary said: ‘This is utterly inadequate and would deliver a further cut in real wages to firefighters in all roles in the midst of the cost-of-living crisis.

    ‘This latest insulting proposal follows 12 years of government-imposed reductions in real wages.

    ‘This proposal will anger firefighters, those working in emergency fire controls, and those in all uniformed roles in fire services across the UK.

    ‘Our members will now begin to discuss this offer and the executive council will reconvene shortly to discuss our next steps. We will now consider all options, including strike action.

    RAIL STAFF

    What pay rise do they want?

    What is their average pay?

    Train drivers have a median salary of £59,000which is around £5,000 more than an average solicitor or a major in the army earns.

    The RMT claims that this figure is not representative of those striking as most drivers who earn the most are not on the picket line, while low-paid staff like cleaners are.

    Hospitality experts claimed that pubs and restaurants in cities may have lost more than £540million in sales last week.
