Scarborough public sector workers strike

Striking public sector workers are out in force in Scarborough today.

Those on strike include teachers, hospital workers and job centre staff. Lynne Arnison, Public and Commercial Services Union rep was on the picket line outside the job centre. She said: “today is mainly about public sector pensions, we stand to lose a lot of money and they’re looking at putting us on the poverty line.”
