Biggest strike since 1926 planned for next week

    Public sector workers are set to strike next week in what would
    be the biggest walk-out since the General Strike in 1926,
    writes Clare Jerrom.

    Members of UNISON, PCS, T&G, AMICUS and UCATT are gearing up
    for a one-day walk-out on 23 March in protest at changes to their
    pension scheme.

    Last minute talks are being held in a bid to come to an
    agreement and prevent strike action going ahead.

    However, public sector unions will sign a joint statement of
    unity tomorrow and have not ruled out further strike action after
    the one-day walk out next week.
