United Kingdom - Unions discuss mass strikes in protest at spending cuts - January 28, 2011

On 28 January, leaders of the TUC affiliates joined to co-ordinate their response to the government's spending cuts and explore the possibility of staging mass strikes. Co-ordinated industrial action against proposed job losses is one course of action being examined. The TUC confederation already announced a major march and rally in London on 26 March to protest against the cuts and highlight the damage being caused to public services. The Association of Teachers and Lecturers is preparing to ballot its members for industrial action against proposed pension changes.
