Take kids to work during strike, says Prime Minister

Posted on by Rob Powell

WORKERS have been encouraged by David Cameron to take their children to work during next week’s public sector strikes.

Speaking in the House of Commons yesterday during Prime Minister’s Questions, he said:

“When it is safe for people to take their children to work, organisations should allow them to do so.”

Around three million public sector workers are expected to take part in the nationwide strikes on November 30th which are in response to changes to pensions.

Unison General Secretary Dave Prentis said:

“We are fighting for a fair pensions deal – not for gold plated pensions, but to give members dignity in their retirement.”

David Cameron’s comments were a response to a  question from Corby MP Louise Mensch, who said “one of most disruptive impacts of next week’s strikes will be on mums and dads with children in school.”

Will your office be encouraging workers to bring children to work rather than stay at home to look after them?
