Hundreds Of Schools In Birmingham And The Black Country Affected By Strike Action

10 July 2014, 16:26

In what’s being called the ‘biggest strike since 1926’, teachers, firefighters and NHS staff will join many civil servants for industrial action.

Unions are in a dispute with the government over pay, pensions and working conditions.

The strikes will affect many areas as there will be a shortage of staff in many workplaces.

Over 300 schools across the West Midlands are affected by the walkout as well as many public transport routes.

In the biggest strike under the coalition government, David Cameron has taken a stance of defiance, and says none of the workers should be going on strike.

One of the biggest demonstrations in the country was in Birmingham's Victoria Square.
