Industrial action by Britain's 5.8 million public sector workers against the government's three year pay freeze is absolutely inevitable according to Bill Morris, general secretary of the TGWU, the Financial Times reports (p5 December 22).

The paper says that Mr Morris's yesterday announced his union's part in a prolonged campaign with other unions against the freeze. He was keen, says the FT, to emphasise that the unions would not be launching the kind of damaging conflict seen in 1978-79.

All public sector unions are considering whether to support industrial action on April 11 with the TGWU's finance and general purpose committee meeting on January 13.

Unison has already endorsed action, says the paper.
