The Sun newspaper reports emergency services will be banned from striking - because of their “duty to action”. Tough new laws will mean train drivers and bus workers have to provide a minimum service level on strike days.

Previously, Rishi Sunak warned: “If the union leaders continue to be unreasonable, then it is my duty to take action to protect the lives and livelihoods of the British public. That’s why, since I became PM, I have been working for new tough laws to protect people from this disruption."

Frances O’Grady, secretary general of the Trades Union Congress, and Christina McAnea, the general secretary of healthcare union Unison, accused the government of refusing to negotiate in good faith and told the chancellor: “Now is not the time for smoke and mirrors. Now is the time for genuine negotiations.”

They claim that when cabinet ministers have met unions “they have repeatedly refused to talk about public sector pay” adding: “Ignoring the main issue on the table isn’t a negotiation.”

“No public sector workers want to take strike action this winter,” they said. “They are committed public servants who take great pride in their jobs and the communities they serve. But the government has left them with no choice.”

Siding with the right wing of his cabinet on immigration won’t save Rishi Sunak

  Siding with the right wing of his cabinet on immigration won’t save Rishi Sunak As the PM’s political odds worsen, he risks embarking on a course which is unlikely to save his party’s fortunes , but leaves an asylum system still in chaos and barring entry to people like his own parents and wider family, who would contribute much to a Britain’s future, if only the “closed” sign was not being painted quite so large on the national door.

A spokesperson for Keir Starmer said: “The government is not serious about avoiding these strikes. Barely a day goes by when we don’t pick up the newspaper and read that the government has briefed out a new policy that is going to get tough on this issue. It is not a serious government working in a serious way for the people of this country.”

But Mr Sunak hit back: “The government has been reasonable. It’s accepted the recommendations of an independent pay review body, giving pay rises in many cases higher than the private sector."
