Mass strike negotiations on the cards as unions threaten walkouts
Unions react angrily to the possibility of state pension reform
Public sector organisations could have to hold strike negotiations with staff after unions threatened widespread walkouts.
Earlier this week, former Labour minister Lord Hutton compiled a report which revealed that pension schemes in the public sector could be dramatically overhauled.
State-sector employees such as NHS staff, teachers and council workers could have to work beyond 60 and pay more money towards their retirement, as the current system is "unsustainable".
This has led to an outcry from unions who have already been forced to accept a two-year pay freeze.
Bob Crow, head of the Rail Maritime and Transport union, said: "The summary of the ConDem pension enforcers' proposals is clear - work longer, pay more and get less.
"This attack on the people who make this country tick will spark a furious backlash and drive millions on to the streets to stop the great pensions robbery."
The Fire Brigades Union has not ruled out industrial action, while Unison has also claimed it will do it all it can do maintain the current system.
