Public Sector Strike Begins

Today sees public sector workers all over the country participating in a strike over pensions and is said to be the biggest walkout for a generation by unions.

With over 1,000 demonstrations set to take place, hospitals, schools, airports, government offices and ports are amount the sites across the UK to be affected. The chancellor is keen to arrange further talks, claiming that a strike will not achieve anything.

The strikes have been called over proposals from the government for workers in the public sector to pay more into their pension funds, work for more years and take a pension based on a ‘career average’ salary.

The government claims that the current public sector pension plan is ‘unsustainable’ as people live longer and it can no longer fund the system as is. The unions have retorted to the proposals saying that if enforced, workers will be paying more money into their pension funds, working for longer and getting less at the end of it.

The strikes are to see the vast majority of schools to be fully or partially closed, flights to and from Heathrow and Gatwick are to see a few cancellations, police and Home Office staff are set to man the immigration services. In Ireland, two-thirds of schools are to close, as well as all bus and train services being suspended.
