Union bargaining to begin on coordinated strikes
Unions are set to meet over the possibility of coordinated strikes.
Strike negotiations are set to take place among a number of trade unionists at a forthcoming meeting.
The Coalition of Resistance (COR) has set out plans for talks to commence on June 30th, with representatives from the National Union of Teachers, University and College Union and the Public and Commercial Services Union (PCS) in attendance.
At the event, the parties are set to discuss the possibility of coordinated industrial action in order to protest against cuts being made to the welfare state and other areas of the public sector.
Former politician Tony Benn, and PCS general secretary Mark Serwotka are scheduled to speak at the conference and the COR has issued an invitation to all organisations opposed to government austerity measures.
Earlier in the month, the PCS announced it would be balloting its members over the possibility of strike action in regard to public sector cuts initiated by the coalition.
