Welsh public sector workers to use union bargaining?

Members of Unison Cymru Wales have been balloted about potential strike action.

12 October 2011

Public sector workers across Wales could take to the picket line over pension reforms.

Unison Cymru Wales is to ballot 80,000 members about whether or not to take strike action and union bargaining may be required to prevent demonstrations from taking place.

Paul O'Shea, secretary of the Welsh branch of the organisation - which recruited 137,000 new people last year - noted many individuals are "angry".

"Why should they suffer, when those that have caused the banking crisis carry on regardless?" he asked.

Mr O'Shea observed the union has been left with "no alternative" other than to ask members if they want to pursue industrial action.

UK-wide, over one million workers are to be asked about their preference for protests, with November 30th set to be the day of activity.

Unison has asked its affiliates to vote yes for strikes and show the government they are serious about not accepting changes to the pension system.
