Talks hope after Shropshire strike

Shropshire UNISON members are hopeful of 'productive' talks after their solid 24 hour strike against Tory council plans for pay cuts of 5.4%. The strike closed customer service points, day centres, highway depots, leisure centres, libraries and Shirehall. In a joint statement the union and the council committed to talks, recognising it had been too late to call off the strike. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-shropshire-15012988 and http://www.unison.org.uk/news/news_view.asp?did=7226
