Unite boss says public sector dispute will run on and on

Less than six months after the biggest walkout in a generation, hundreds of thousands of public sector workers are striking again on Thursday.

Civil servants, health workers and university lecturers are losing a day's pay in protest at changes to their pensions.

Ministers say the offer on the table is non-negotiable but speaking to BBC Radio 5 live's Victoria Derbyshire, the Unite General Secretary, Len McCluskey, said the government must keep its pension commitments.

Mr McCluskey added that despite the low strike turnout the dispute would run on and on.
