Up and down the country schools, hospitals, council offices and other services have been affected today by the biggest wave of co-ordinated strike action for eighty-five years. The BBC estimate 80% of all schools were closed today. Between two and three million public sector workers, from more than thirty unions have gone on strike to defend their pensions from the outrageous attack the Tory-led governnment has launched. They want public sector workers to pay more into their pension schemes, work longer and receive less at the end. But public sector workers are not only striking for their pensions. They are also striking to defend their services from the vicious cuts agenda this government has unleashed.
