Jersey teachers fight pay freeze

Across Europe, Governments are demanding that teachers and other public sector workers' are made to pay for the bailout of the banks. But European workers have also been resisting those attacks with strikes and demonstrations.

Those battles are moving closer - at least as far as Jersey!

Jersey is reckoned to be the third richest country in the world, per capita. Yet its government is imposing a pay freeze on civil servants, fire fighters, nurses, prison officers and teachers.

Jersey's trade unions are organising a Public Services Defence demonstration and rally on Saturday 24 April.
