Strike negotiations loom for UK

Up to 750,000 people could go on strike over proposed pensions reforms and pay cuts.

13 June 2011

Some 750,000 workers may take to the picket line if strike negotiations do not turn out to be successful.

According to the Daily Telegraph, public sector employees such as teachers and civil servants are preparing to walk out of their position en masse in a row over pay, job cuts and pension provision.

One organisation that may be striking for the first time is the Association of Teachers and Lecturers (ATL).

General secretary of the organisation Mary Bousted told the newspaper: "I've never seen ATL members so angry about what the government is doing and I've never seen such determination by members to protect their pensions."

If those in power want to avoid large-scale demonstrations, then union bargaining may be needed to secure some form of resolution.

Ms Bousted recently noted that the proposed changes represent a "political ideology", as the facts do not support what those in power want to introduce.
