Can strike action ever be a positive thing? Reply

On the 30th June 2011 we are likely to see 750,000 public sectors go on strike with the potential of over 3 million workers going on strike in the autumn. The UK has to cut costs, is striking really the best way to solve our problems?

I appreciate that raising the retirement age, increasing pension contributions and job cuts are not going to be popular but strikes won’t help, positive constructive negotiation and ideas are what we need.

For those not involved in the strike action we need to work on strategies to limit the impact on our businesses and avoid further damage to our fragile economy.
