Image © Dave Prentis, leader of the UKs largest public sector union, Unison, turned up the heat on a melting pot of fury yesterday when he announced their campaign to "break the pay freeze, stop the jobs cull and send this coalition packing" would continue for as long as necessary. With the recent fall in army numbers, strike action and unrest reported from teachers, rail and airline workers, not to mention public sector pension alterations, it seems dissatisfaction is fast becoming a trend within our unions and with no ease up on the pressure it seems there is only so much stirring one pot can take. To say the threats of Prentis and his union were enraged is to underestimate them entirely. Sick with the protection of 'fat-cat bankers' and the cuts being made to our public-sector workers, the coalition could face a seriously rocky road if Cameron doesn’t put his hands up, bend his knees, and get down with the moves of Usher and his now infamous U-turn on yet another of the governments unpopular reforms. But what exactly is it that pains Prentis and public-sector workers so greatly?? .. I shall let him tell you in his own words.

  • A 50% increase in pensions contributions – not a penny into the pensions funds.
  • A 50% reduction in benefits. All workers to work longer, and if you happen to be privatised – well tough. You can't take it with you.
  • And to add insult to injury, 300,000 women finding out on the radio that their state pension age will go up, yet again, to 65, then to 67, and more. They will lose thousands.
It's daylight robbery. Don't underestimate the outrage and anger of our members, at the savagery of your gratuitous attack on our pensions – to pay more, get less, work longer. What may initially seem like a victory for him and his party of red’s, actually is slap on the hand for them too. Prentis warned if Labour doesn’t play ball and start showing their support rather more readily, their handsome money pot will be swiftly removed. War on the coalition and a ticking off for the opposition... a good day at the office.

The war on the coalition – A Unison reaction to prejudice politics

Dave Prentis, leader of the UKs largest public sector union, Unison, turned up the heat on a melting pot of fury yesterday when he announced their campaign to “break the pay freeze, stop the jobs cull and send this coalition packing” would continue for as long as necessary.
