A PLANNED firefighter strike due to take place in Torbay on Saturday has been called off.
The Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service has received confirmation that the planned stoppage by the Fire Brigades Union between 6.30pm and 11.30pm has been postponed.
A spokesman said: “Further negotiations are due to take place in the dispute between the FBU and the Government and further information will be distributed when it is available.”
The nationwide action would have been the second strike in a month.
The dispute centres on a dispute with the government over pension reforms.
