Unison warns of strikes over pension plans

One of the UK's biggest trade unions says pension reform plans could trigger the biggest wave of industrial action since the General Strike in the 1920s.

Unison leader Dave Prentis said unions were prepared for "sustained and indefinite" strikes over proposed changes to public sector pensions.

The TUC - the Trades Union Congress - said Mr Prentis was reflecting "real anger" across the union movement.
