Unite to seek strike negotiations?

Unite has revealed it is balloting its members over whether or not to pursue strike action.

15 September 2011

Some 250,000 workers from the Unite union are to be balloted about the possibility of strike action.

This is because employees are unhappy about proposals to alter pensions in the public sector, which means strike negotiations may be required.

General secretary of the organisation Len McCluskey noted it is with "reluctance" that this step has been taken.

"But we have been faced with a government that refuses to negotiate in good faith," he added.

The specialist continued by saying workers in the public sector are being "unfairly targeted" for cuts, despite the fact many of them are not paid much as it is.

Mr McCluskey observed that Unite - which represents over 1.5 million people in the UK - will continue to be available to the government and open to holding conservations.

But he added that the terms of these discussions have to be in "good faith", or else there is no point.
