Pensions 'are a worthwhile topic to strike over'
Research has shown that many public sector workers feel pensions are important enough to take industrial action over.
Strike negotiations are a worthwhile exercise when it comes to protecting the UK's pensions system.
That is according to many professionals in the public sector, who believe that industrial action is necessary if the government is going to sit up and take notice of their wishes, new research has established.
A study published today (June 30th) by recruitment consultancy Badenoch & Clark has found that 33.8 per cent of workers in this arena think pensions are worth striking over.
The survey involved questioning 1,000 people and also established that 33.4 per cent would also be prepared to take industrial action if they thought their colleagues were being poorly treated by bosses.
Some 750,000 public sector employees are on strike today over potential pension changes and Nicola Linkleter, managing director of Badenoch & Clark, observed that resolution of this issue is "vital".
This comes after David Frost, director-general of the British Chambers of Commerce noted that these strikes are likely to damage the UK's economic recovery.
