Pub­lic sec­tor union threat

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&World Update -

THE largest pub­lic sec­tor work­ers’ union is call­ing on its 1.3m mem­bers to join re­sis­tance to govern­ment cuts. The gen­eral sec­re­tary of Uni­son, Dave Pren­tis, says the govern­ment “won’t know what hit them” if it cuts ser­vices, pay or pen­sions. The warn­ing comes as a sur­vey of lo­cal au­thor­i­ties re­veals coun­cils have al­ready ear­marked bil­lions of pounds worth of sav­ings. So­cial care and trans­port could be among the biggest vic­tims.
