30 September 2012 Last updated at 12:40 BST

Ed Miliband can thank union support for becoming Labour leader but he is set to clash with left-wing union bosses fighting government spending cuts who are looking into organising a general strike.

Susana Mendonca spoke to union activists in Manchester for their views of the Labour leadership and co-ordinated industrial action.

She heard from shop steward Dave Schofield from GMB Manchester, Unison Stockport branch secretary Angela Rayner and Daily Mirror Associate Editor Kevin Maguire.

The film was followed by a debate with PCS's Mark Sertwotka and columnist Phil Collins
