ABSTRACT
This section offers news briefs on employee relations in Great Britain as of October 2011. According to a trade union survey, 40 percent of train manufacturing suppliers plan to make job losses, in addition to the 3,000 skilled jobs under threat in Derby. As a result of plans to end its defined benefit pension scheme, household products giant Unilever is facing potential strike action. A nationwide day of action has been set by public-sector workers over pension reforms on November 30, 2011.
