Public sector workers 'prefer pay cut to pension loss'


Well for a start, finding that the majority of public service workers would prefer a pay cut to pension loss based on a survey of just 1000 people is deeply flawed. Secondly, why should we agree to any sort of cut when we have been cut big time already. The 2year pay freeze was damaging enough, especially with inflation running so high; what we actually earn now is reducing all the time. I agree with Mike on all his points. But when are we actually going to do something positive? While we all sit here waiting to see what happens, the government and the trusts are thinking up new ways to shaft us. When are we going to give them a big shock, a big FAT NO to all their threats. The time to talk, negotiate is over, we need to seriously kick their backsides NOW!!!
