SIPTU says members of Clare Fire Service have been forced to consider resorting to strike action in an attempt to resolve ongoing issues with the local authority.

The union served the council with a two-week written notice, which expires today, warning that unless a solution could be found, members in the retained fire service would be balloted for industrial and strike action.



SIPTU Organiser, Arek Muszynski, says members will be balloted next week.#
