Strike negotiations needed by Nottinghamshire Police?

Unison members are being balloted about their willingness to go on strike.

Strike negotiations are required to avert Nottinghamshire Police taking to the picket line.

Alterations to pensions and possible job losses are the reasons for the dissatisfaction from front counter staff and police community support officers.

Members of Unison - of which there are 1.3 million nationwide - have been balloted about the possibility for industrial action.

Deputy Chief Constable Chris Eyre told the Lincolnshire Echo that the force will still be operational if protests are held.

"Our ultimate responsibility is to the people of Nottinghamshire and I want to reassure them that we are taking the necessary steps to mitigate any impact," he added.

According to the officer, redundancies are "regrettable", but it is necessary in order to meet the £40 million of cuts outlined by the government.

It remains to be seen whether bargaining between Europe's biggest public sector union and the force can find a resolution between the two parties and avoid demonstrations.
