Unison public sector union preparing for strike vote

The UK's second largest union, Unison, is preparing to strike over pension reform as it enters the first day of its annual conference on Tuesday.

In his opening speech, general secretary Dave Prentis will confirm his willingness to negotiate, but also the plan to ballot members should talks fail.

Negotiations with the government over pension reform resume on 27 June.

John Moylan reports.
