Trade unions planning series of strikes over pensions

Unions are planning a sustained campaign of industrial action over public sector pension changes, the BBC has learned.

A one-day strike had been expected in November, but a senior union leader has confirmed that a "rolling protest" is being planned, potentially involving millions of workers.

The three biggest public sector unions - Unison, Unite and the GMB - are thought to be close to announcing a strike ballot over planned pension reforms.
