Northern Ireland public sector strike disrupts public services

The biggest public sector strike in years has “brought much of Northern Ireland to a standstill”.

The strike has affected education, public transport and administration.

It was taken in protest against public service cuts and Stormont’s budget.

Jackie Pollock of Unite said the “scale of today’s response took us by surprise, as did the overwhelming support shown by members of the public”.
