Public sector union Unison is set for an early clash with Tony Blair's Labour government according to its annual conference agenda, reports the Financial Times (5 May, p10).

Motions in the agenda criticise the government's economic policy and call for more public sector jobs and a high quality welfare state.

It shows Unison's dissatisfaction with Labour's continuing the public sector pay freeze for two years. The union's executive attacks chancellor Gordon Brown over the pay freeze commitment, calls for an end to PFI and CCT and wants 'progressive taxation'.

Unison will hold its conference next month.
