#N30 Pensions Strike: BBC poll suggests strong support

An opinion poll commissioned by BBC News #unisonscotn30 suggests 61% of people believe public sector workers are justified in going on strike over pension changes. The poll indicates greater sympathy for the industrial action amongst women - at 67% - compared to men, at 55%. Younger people, it also suggests, are considerably more supportive of the strikes than pensioners; almost four in five 18-24 year olds back the action, a little under half of over-65s do.
