On Thursday April 24th teachers, lecturers and public sector workers staged a one-day strike. Teachers were out on official strike for the first time for 21 years. They were joined by Further Education (FE) lecturers organised in UCU and public sector workers from the PCS union who are faced with a government imposed 2% pay rise limit. At last workers in the public sector were taking organised, coordinated and united strike action against pay offers that represent a cut in their standard of living.
