As many of you will know the three main public sector unions, along with the NUT, have called a 24 hour strike today.
Here's what council leader Jon Collins of the 'People's Party' had to say about that -
"We understand that people are upset about the reduction in living standards as pensions are eroded and pay hasn't kept up with inflation. However, workers across the private and public sector are in the same position and we don't believe that strike action that closes schools, inconveniences parents and loses pupils a day's education is the best way forward."
Who needs Tories eh?
