Socialist unions plan to ‘organize’ against job cuts
Because people shouldn’t be fired. E-vah.
Civil servants have voted to ballot on strike action in protest against job cuts and changes to their pensions, paving the way for a 750,000-strong walkout from schools, universities, courts and Whitehall on 30 June.
The decision at the PCS civil service union’s annual conference in Brighton on Wednesday comes as talks set up to avoid strikes spreading across the public sector are threatening to grind to a halt. Ministers and unions have failed to agree on even the basic starting point for negotiations.
This is happening in England, but it could happen anywhere where unions have power – and it does, of course.
The fact of the matter is that European welfare states have become insolvent. The British can’t keep the current system up. They’ve got to reform – and fast too. Government has become too big. Unlike what these “civil servants” seem to think, they are not working in the private sector; taxpayers are forced to pay their salaries.
Of course public sector unions are the worst of the worst. They always demand more jobs, more pay, more privileges.
