Strike negotiations could aid UK economy

An agreement is required in order to prevent the UK's economy being damaged.

29 June 2011

A resolution is required between the unions and the government in strike negotiations in order to protect the UK's economy.

This is according to David Frost, director-general of the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC), who noted both confidence and investment will be affected by "large-scale industrial action".

Due to the high number of teachers who are taking to the picket line in protest over possible pension changes, many parents will have to take a day off work to look after their children, he stated.

"Many of those private sector employees affected by these strikes envy the better working terms and conditions enjoyed by those in the public sector," Mr Frost added.

The specialist continued by saying it is time for those in public sector positions to take notice of the economic situation.

David Kern, chief economist at the BCC, recently remarked current GDP figures highlight the need for a stronger private sector.
