Britains largest strike since 1926. 2.45% not enough say unions.

Close to 500,000 council workers are striking in response to the government's offer of a 2.45% pay rise. Over the next three days the strike will shut down libraries, museums, nursery schools, the passport office, Land Registry, the Coastguard, the valuation office agency, the immigration office and some ferries. Disrupted services include rubbish collections, driving tests and other town hall services.

There's a lot of discontent out there, and Winter is still months away.
