Massive Public-Sector Strikes Anticipated in England

Prison The Mail Online (via PJH Law) reports that the government in England anticipates a massive strike over public-sector cutbacks, primarily in the prison sector.  Three thousand soldiers are being trained as prison guards as the guards prepare to strike over plans to privatize two prisons.  From the Daily Mail:

Officials have conducted ‘war games’ to ensure that strike breakers are available to run vital facilities such as the Tube and energy hotspots such as power stations.

Transport managers and prison bosses have been ordered to organise agency workers and teams of managers to cross picket lines amid fears of a nationwide summer of industrial action.

Ministers believe militant union bosses are planning to bring Britain to a halt with coordinated strikes on roads, railways, and throughout the public services.
