Danny Alexander accused Union Leaders of being militat, and demanding strike action when they have been offered a good settlement. Two points:
1. Unions are far from militant these days, if anything they usually keep the status quo and definately steer away from any talk of a general strike.
2. Of course he thinks the new pensions offer was generous – he’s part of the Govt that offered it. m
The quality rag The Sun have reported:
ministers are writing directly to 2.5million public sector workers in a last-ditch bid to head off a Winter of Discontent.
It’s great that they are building up the public’s fear of what strike action may bring – a winter of discontent – this will happen with or without a strike the only difference being is whether we all simply accept all of the changes that the Tories want to bring in, no matter what.
