Where you work - South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue

There are 227 support staff in the service, a large proportion of whom are members of UNISON. They play a vital role in keeping the public of South Yorkshire safe by providing advice and education and releasing fire fighters to carry out their duties. Drastic government cuts mean approximately 40 of these posts will be lost.

UNISON stewards are engaged in meetings with management aimed at minimising the number of compulsory redundancies. They also provide support and advice to staff who request it to try to ensure they remain employed. Approval has been given for UNISON to have a third steward to reduce the burden on the other two during this difficult period.
