Barristers join postmen, teachers, transport workers, NHS and bin men in threatening strike action

With inflation forcast to pass 11%, workers need at least that much of a raise to just stand still. We all knew Brexit would make us poorer, but this is ridiculous!

Barristers voted to strike today in a row over legal aid funding as teachers, binmen and NHS staff all threatened to walk out on a level not seen since the Winter of Discontent in the 1970s.

The Criminal Bar Association (CBA), which represents barristers in England and Wales, said several days of court walkouts will begin from next week along with a refusal to take on new cases.

The promised industrial action, announced this morning following a ballot of members, comes at a time of significant backlogs across the court system due to the pandemic.

The CBA said around 81.5% of the more than 2,000 members to respond supported industrial action.
