Retained Firefighters In Wicklow Vote To Accept WRC Recommendations

Retained fire fighters have voted to accept proposals from the Workplace Relations Commission to resolve their industrial dispute.

It follows intensive consultations last week and a secret ballot.

SIPTU has welcomed the news, but warned that while today's vote ends the current strike, it doesn't end that battle.

It comes after a protracted row over what the union described as poor terms and conditions for retained fire fighters.
