    Ask yourself how much as a pension he will get from his stint as a government minister.....? Let alone his pension as an MP...........

    Among money-saving measures outlined by the chancellor were a 1% cap on public sector pay for two years, once the current two-year pay freeze ends from 2013
    Erm.. doesn't that actually mean we will have no raise until 2013 then 1% for two years....

    Daft question this but... can you strike even if you aren't in one of the trade Unions that will be striking tomorrow?

    If there's a picket line at my school I won't be crossing it but I'm scared that this will get me into trouble.

    If your not in a striking union you can't legally strike as far as i understand, the school should make reasonable efforts to get you into work safely past the picket, not turning up without even making an effort will be classed as a no-show not even a strike day

    We got told:-
    Staff should note that in the event that they choose not to cross a picket line, this will be treated as a circumstance justifying the deduction from pay.

    Someone told me that if you join a striking union i.e. UNISON tonight, you are protected straight away. Therefore, this would cover me for tomorrow's strike action, correct?

    I think the bigger unions have soem hoops stopping you getting in straight away.

    As a general rule of thumb, if your union hasn't told you they are striking, turn up to work as if nothing has happened or you risk plenty of hot water.

    Channel 4 news calculated that "the public sector workforce will face a 16% real time pay cut over the lifetime of this parliament" That's without the 4% pension increase, so it looks closer to 20%
    The tories really are putting the 'n' back into 'cuts'

    This is what happens when people reject an offer - the offer gets taken away from them.
    The Gov't threatened them that they would do this unless they returned to the table and that is exactly what they have done..
