Public sector workers could consider strike negotiations

Strike negotiations could be sought by public sector employees.

21 October 2011

Public sector workers may seek strike negotiations in an effort to come to an agreement with the government.

This is because employees are unhappy at the proposed cuts to jobs and they may take to the picket line to show their frustrations.

PricewaterhouseCooper had predicted up to 600,000 jobs could go in the next four years, which exceeds the initial estimate of 400,000 made by the Office of Budget Responsibility.

Dave Prentis, general secretary of Unison - which generates revenue for lobbying through the General Political Fund and Labour Link - said the government is "hitting hard and fast".

"The job cuts will hit local communities as vital services are withdrawn or stripped back to the bone," he added.

Mr Prentis continued by saying that it is low-paid workers who will suffer the most from the cuts, while many others are "struggling to cope with record inflation [and] pay freezes".
