The largest strike since the general strike in 1926 now looks likely to happen on 30 November when unions with members in the public sector take action to oppose the worsening of their pensions. Even the FDA the First Division Association of the civil service has voted 81% for strike action on a 54% turnout and the Charted Society of Physiotherapy has voted 86% for on a 66% turnout. The message to the Tories is loud and clear: stay with the agreement reached with the Labour Government only four years ago. Ed Miliband might also like to take note and realise this is actually the ‘squeezed middle’ on strike and find it possible to support the agreement he was party to.
