Commenting today (Thursday) on the TUC Day of Action yesterday, TUC General Secretary Brendan Barber said:
'The government should turn its attention from trying to down play what was the biggest strike in a generation, stop the war of words and get on with serious negotiations where they spell out exactly what they are now proposing in each scheme.
'Unions want to see a fair negotiated settlement and are ready for the intensive talks we now need, but those talks need content and that can only come from ministers.'
