Months of strikes lie ahead, TUC chief warns
Robert Lea and Philip Pank
"Britain faces months of walkouts whatever the result of today's High Court ruling on a national rail strike, the head of the trade union movement has told The Times.
"Brendan Barber, the General Secretary of the TUC, said that there were very real risks of widespread action after the general election if the public sector bore the brunt of spending cuts.
"His warning comes on the day that the High Court is expected to rule on whether to grant Network Rail an emergency injunction against the RMT union, which is threatening to strike from Tuesday the day that Gordon Brown is expected to call the election."
