More polls show support for union strikes but media ignores them

Yesterday afternoon I pointed to a Populus poll, largely ignored by the media, showing widespread support amongst the public for unions.

Populus found 54% of people agreed that strikes were a legitimate way for unions to protect the pay and conditions of their members. Only 18% of the public disagreed.

Since then, more polls have shown support for unions positions but have also been ignored by the media industry.

Last night ITV reported on a poll by Comres that more than half of people think union strikes have “no chance of succeeding”.

But the broadcaster neglected to mention other key findings (hat-tip @neilrfoster).

When asked: “Public-sector workers are right to take strike action over maintaining their pension plans” – 48% agreed. 36% disagreed and 16% were unsure.

When asked: “Public-sector workers are suffering an unfair decline in living standards because of the spending cuts” – 43% agreed. 38% disagreed and 19% were unsure.

And contrary to popular perception, London had the highest support for strike action (58%) compared to other parts of the country.

A similar poll by YouGov released yesterday showed the public thought most public sector workers (except doctors and police officers) had the right to strike.

“Public-sector workers are right to take strike action over maintaining their pension plans” – 48% agreed. 36% disagreed and 16% were unsure.

i.e. less than half of respondents think that strike action is right
i.e. more than half of respondents do not agree or are unsure that strike action is right.

And this is supposed to be a good thing?

Do individual media outlets only promote and publicise polls and surveys which they themselves have commissioned? (so as not to give any boost to rival media outlets?)

Or is it a case of media outlets seeing themselves as branches of entertainment rather than news/information?

Well, here’s one Working Class bloke who says tough! Public Pension schemes do need to be reformed.

Where were the Unions when Gordon Brown ripped off the Private Pension schemes only to waste what he stole on expanding the Public Sector?

Wonder how many Labour mps and members agree with Ed Miliband on the strike, I know I don’t ! Should have stood up and been noticed.

Selective reporting by the gutter Right, as ever.
