United Kingdom -New Year’s Eve police strike -January 02, 2014

In protest against a below-inflation 1% pay increase the Public and Commercial Services (PCS) trade union called a London strike. As a consequence, thousands of police civilian staff, including handlers of 999 calls, will probably strike on New Year's Eve to coincide with a fresh walkout by firefighters. About 7,500 civilian police workers will take action for 24 hours in a row over pay while members of the Fire Brigades Union (FBU) in England and Wales will stop work for six hours from 6.30pm. It will be the eighth strike by the firefighters since September 2013 in a bitter dispute over pensions and the retirement age.
