Following a Scottish Officer's sectional meeting held in Perth on June 18th, Officials were unable at this time to form a collective position on a new FDS designed for the SFRS.


However, in the interim and while elected and appointed officials take their allocated annual leave, a formal response has been submitted to ACO Goodhew.


This response, which captures comments and concerns received on both the proposed FDS and recently circulated staff letters, comments sufficiently at this time to allow negotiations to continue on their return at the beginning of July.
