Explosion of pay strikes… ah, that will be the public sector then.

Apparently it’s the annual TUC jig and unlike the days of yesteryear when the BBC would televise it in all its corrupt left wing dullness, no one seems to really give a damn about the unions these days save only those who are in the public sector where the dinosaurs still hold sway…


Delegates at the annual TUC Congress are due to vote on calls for a programme of industrial action today against Coalition cuts.
Unison leader Dave Prentis told the conference in Bournemouth that pay had fallen behind inflation for five years.

This would be the same Dave Prentis who back in 2010 was earning with benefits the princely sum of £127,436. Clearly a man of the people.

So what if pay has fallen behind inflation? His members are capable of finding a job elsewhere surely? Oh, I forgot, this is the public sector and they do like their little gold plated pensions along with a job for life. Whilst completely forgetting who actually stumps up for their wages, that being the same people who suffer when they get all bolshie about the fact that the magic money tree has dried up.

Teachers and firefighters are set to strike and the Communication Workers Union says it will ballot its members over Royal Mail privatisation.

Yep, again it’s the public sector as in those whose remuneration comes out of the public purse. Those who don’t appear to realise that there is a recession and even if they have, don’t give a damn because they believe a strike will solve all their problems by getting more cash off the taxpayer (something that they always conveniently forget)

It will be interesting if in 2014 there is a government in place who won’t kowtow to these dinosaurs led by those who do not suffer by said actions as those on strike will still keep paying their wages.

There was once a place for unions, rights and abuses to be fought for or against. These days, the public sector unions are just taking the piss…

    At least if teachers go on strike, then those parents who have the time can give their children real education.

    Shall we dance as a little kid is put up the fire place when nobody he knew could afford a fire place, or rescue him? Shall we say that circumstances were changed because of the goodness in the hearts of people like you who support them? Or shall we face the reality that no such thing would ever have happened without a push from the poor people below to say enough?

      As I said in my post, unions had a place, but striking for more money when other sectors simply get on with things because they are suckling at the public purse isn’t one of them.

    Oh goody. The fire-fighters. The military lads on half the firey’s pay will get to play with the fire engines again.

    Mind you there are not many military lads available now with so many off elsewhere saving muslims from muslims in some Allah-blessed spot. We might yet see Colonels and Brigadiers driving the big one with the ladder.

    You all really ought to get the facts about the firefighter’s dispute before writing ill informed rubbish about it.
