UK - Employers should brace themselves for increased industrial action on pensions issues, law firm DLA warns.
In its 10th annual survey into industrial relations, DLA found that employers and unions expect action to increase during the next 12 months over pay and working conditions, including pensions.
DLA partner and industrial relations specialist Jeremy Emmott said: “The unions are certainly saying that pay is the number one issue – and pensions always falls under pay or conditions of employment.”
Emmott said the current strikes at steel giant Caparo were a good indication of the climate for the coming year.
