Unions which have not accepted the Government’s so-called “final” formula for public sector pensions are talking about a further strike on the issue in late March, and more action beyond that.
But activists in those unions, and especially in the officially “left-wing” unions, will have to fight hard:
• to make sure the further strike happens;
• that it is energetically organised, and not just a limp token protest;
• and that “more action” means a genuine ongoing campaign of rolling and selective action, with activity every week, rather than advice to workers to wait after the one-day protest
