Unison head tells members to strike

The
leader of trade union Unison has told members in the public service to consider
striking if the they are not offered decent pay deals.

Dave
Prentice told delegates at the union’s annual conference in Brighton that the
private sector is still benefiting by taking over public services.

He
said strikes would be an option if local government workers are not given
acceptable pay deals and schools are not given enough money for reforms.

Prentice
also praised Unison members who went on strike last year.
