Cornish Schools Shut By Strikes
3:43pm 28th November 2011
The number of Cornish schools set to be hit by strike action reaches more than a hundred.
Teachers are among millions of people expected to walk out on Wednesday.
Unions and ministers are blaming each other for the pensions row.
Brendan Barber from the TUC: "We're not denying that potentially there are going to be increased costs, and there have to be sensible arrangements to ensure the sustainability of schemes for the long term. But the three percent increase in contributions that the government is seeking to force through. That's not to do with long term affordability."
Simon Hughes is the Deputy Leader of the Liberal Democrats. He is calling on unions to think again: "Making sure alot of people can't go to work because they've got to look after their children, making sure other people can't work because something has to close down, disrupting people, delaying people, airports, borders, hospitals, is not very clever this time. The economy is in dire straits."
You can see a full list of which classes are closed up on Pirate FM's homepage.
