Firefighter’s call for strike action

Firefighter’s call for strike action - France’s firefighters have announced strike action from Wednesday 26th June until August 31. Seven unions have filed for strike action in protest against the lack of resources. The unions which represent more than 85% of professional firefights have written to France’s Interior Minister Christophe Castaner demanding an increase in resources following the rise in the number of interventions. A minimum service is expected as of Wednesday.
