Money the real motivation for 24-hour strike

With less than a fifth of its members taking part in a ballot for strike action (News, October 5), Unison decided to deploy their usual Lefty bully-boy tactics and force a 24-hour strike.

The union spent a lot of time and effort trying to convince the public that the strike was motivated by their concern that the public would be affected by cuts to health and education.

Ironically, that same concern went missing on Wednesday when their selfish actions led to the cancellation of more than 1,000 minor operations.

This strike was motivated by budget cuts hitting the strikers in their pockets, through pay-freezes and changes to their pensions.
