Pay freezes and below-inflation pay rises have reduced public sector workers' pay by 20% since the coalition came to power in 2010, public sector pensions have been attacked and public services have been slashed across the country. So members of the NUT, Unite, GMB, Unison, FBU and PCS will be striking and taking part in demonstrations and rallies. (Details can be found here and here)
