Erm.. doesn't that actually mean we will have no raise until 2013 then 1% for two years....
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

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?

As well as the 1% pay cap some of us will have to work another year before retirement BBC News - Autumn Statement: 'Longer wait' for state pension

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

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%

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..
