Public Sector Strikes

December 6th, 2011

Over 1.5 million public sector workers went on strike this week in protest over pension reformation in what has been described as the biggest strike in a generation.

Over 70% of schools were closed and vital services such as hospitals were affected while trade union members and protesters rallied in over 1000 towns and cities.

The Prime Minister caused outrage among public sector workers by dismissing the action as having little support, describing it as a “damp squib”.

Following the day of action, TUC General Secretary Brendan Barber stated that ‘unions want to see a fair negotiated settlement and are ready for the intensive talks we now need, but those talks need content and that can only come from ministers.’

How were your students affected by the strike?  Did your school close and do they understand why?
