Treasury Ministers and officials regularly engage with trade unions on overall pay and pension policy. However, pay for the Fire and Rescue Service is negotiated through two National Joint Councils. The NJC for Local Authority Fire and Rescue Services negotiates for UK firefighters and control room staff (up to and including the area manager role) and the NJC for Brigade Managers negotiates for Chief Fire Officers, deputies and assistants.
The Treasury is not a member of either of these Joint Councils and therefore no Treasury Minister or official has met either the trade unions or the Chief Fire Officers Association as part of pay negotiations.
