Statement from the States Employment Board

01 August 2019

The States Employment Board has issued the following statement regarding firefighters' pensions:

​“The States Employment Board continues to explore options with the Fire and Rescue Service Association to seek a resolution to their claims. The SEB has a responsibility to consider these claims in the wider context of the affordability and sustainability of pensions schemes for the whole public service. Put simply, if the claims were to succeed, this would make the current public service pension schemes potentially unaffordable, and the SEB must be mindful of the impact on thousands of public sector employees, and not just firefighters.

“Court of Appeal proceedings are scheduled to commence on 23 September 2019, so it would be inappropriate to comment further.”
