Solidarity with pension strikers

I'm on my way to offer my services making teas and coffees for striking members of the NUT and UCU (I've checked the advice from UNISON Regional Office and it seems that I can safely and lawfully do this!)

Given the deafening silence from Eric Pickles concerning the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) we can't rule out further strike action by LGPS members. Since, in almost every workplace where there are members of the Teachers' Pension Scheme those members work alongside LGPS members, there is a compelling case for coordination between our respective trade unions.

It's a shame that today's co-ordination goes no further than assistance with refreshments.
