CITY VIEWS: HOW DAMAGING WILL THE STRIKES BE?

ANDREW FIELD | TOM JAMES UK
“I don’t think they should strike over pensions. They won’t get a better deal anywhere else. Even if their pensions will be slightly less now than before, they are still good, and they are state guaranteed.”

ROXROY DUNKLEY | POOLIA UK
“The strikes present a bad image to other countries. Just because we have a right to strike, it doesn’t make it right to strike. If everyone striked about every grievance, the world wouldn’t function.”

SIMON BROWN | NORTHLAND CAPITAL PARTNERS
“The strikes are a bit pre-emptive on the basis that they are still in negotiation with the government. But I don’t think this will have too negative an impact on how the UK is perceived. Other countries are in similar positions.”
