To: ALL MEMBERS
FBU Scotland officials will be attending a number of spring party conferences in Scotland over the coming weeks to engage and communicate with politicians on the run up to the Holyrood elections. The first conference being attended is this weekend which will see officials at the Green Party conference in Edinburgh followed by the SNP and Labour conferences where we intend debating the cuts to the Fire Service with the politicians and party members and we will also be highlighting the dangers should the cuts in funding continue over the coming years.
