Police and prisoner officers, Civil Service, NHS and University unions are preparing for widespread strike action tomorrow for so called 'All Out M10'.
The strike is in protest of cuts to budgets, increases in pension scheme payments and the raising of the retirement age across public sector employment. PCS, the Civil Service union have said: "The government wants us to pay more and work longer for a lower pension, while they freeze our pay and cut 1 in 5 jobs."
While thousands are expected to strike in central London tomorrow, protests will also be taking place across the country, with picket lines outside places of work and marches to regional headquarters.
That police officers are joining the strike action is notable as there has been a high police presence at all other protests this year, sometimes resulting in altercations between protesters and police. The Police Federation union are meeting at Millbank at 10.30am, and plan to march at 12pm, passing the Home Office, Houses of Parliament, the Treasury, Whitehall, Trafalgar Square and the National Police Memorial.
