VIDEO: Striking workers picket Milton Keynes Council

Public sector staff took their protest outside the council’s city centre offices today.

Trade union members across the country are taking part in a one-day strike today. Local members of the GMB, Unison and the NUT were among those striking to show their unhappiness with below-inflation pay rises and other government cuts.
