Union leader pre­dicts more strike ac­tion

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

A UNION leader will to­day pre­dict that more strikes will be held against the Gov­ern­ment’s con­tro­ver­sial public sec­tor pen­sion re­forms amid re­ports that doc­tors look set for a “his­toric” vote in favour of in­dus­trial ac­tion. Mark Ser­wotka, gen­eral sec­re­tary of the Public and Com­mer­cial Ser­vices union, said work­ers were re­ject­ing the coali­tion’s planned changes in in­creas­ing num­bers. He will tell the open­ing ses­sion of his union’s an­nual con­fer­ence in Brighton: “The Gov­ern­ment wants ev­ery public sec­tor worker to work longer, pay more and get less. “If we stand to­gether, we can win.”
