Mark Serwotka of PCS: 'Government has not moved a jot'

Ministers and union leaders are holding talks in the run-up to a planned strike over pensions by public sector workers.

The walk-out by teachers and civil servants on Thursday is likely to cause widespread disruption and more unions are threatening action in the autumn.

Mark Serwotka from the Public and Commercial Services union said the government had "not moved a jot" during negotiations on public pension reform, and that strike action had to continue.
