STRIKE: Minister condemns action
‘Disappointing’ that day of action has gone ahead, says Francis Maude.
Today’s strike action will inconvenience the public at a time when the government is working to get the country back on its feet, according to Minister for the Cabinet Office Francis Maude.
He told the Midweek Herald: “It’s disappointing that strikes have gone ahead.
“They will inconvenience hard working men and women across the country, at a time when we are working to get Britain back on its feet.
“Our offer is generous and fair to public sector workers and other taxpayers. Many low and middle income workers will actually receive a larger pension income at retirement.”
The minister added: “It is irresponsible of the unions to carry out these strikes while discussions are ongoing. Once this day of disruption is over we need to get back to the table and reach an agreement.”
