Response to FBU Ballot Result

14th December 2016

Yesterday (13th December 2016) the FBU in North Yorkshire announced a ‘yes’ result to their ballot for action short of a strike in North Yorkshire.

The Service believes that all the concerns raised by the FBU have been addressed previously, during the extensive consultation which has taken place, over the last two and half years, about introduction of the Tactical Response Vehicles.

Risk assessments and analysis of impact undertaken, over the last three years, suggest that the introduction of TRVs will have no significant adverse impact on the service to the public or to the safety of staff.

It is disappointing and saddening that the FBU have chosen to take this action. There has been extensive consultation with the FBU over the last two and half years about introduction of the TRVs but they are unwilling to accept new ways of working.

The Service has contingency plans in place to minimise the impact of any action on public safety.
