Unions call 'national day of action' over pensions

Unions have called on a nationwide "day of action" for 30 November, which threatens to disrupt public services across the UK.

Strikes, rallies and other events will be held in protest at the government's decision to increase workers' pension contribution payments.

If the strikes go ahead it will be the "biggest trade union mobilisation for a generation", said TUC General Secretary Brendan Barber.
