Today thousands of public sector workers will be holiding strikes in a dispute with the government over pensions. A disruption like this can hamper an economy and even just 24 hours of strike actions can cause problems and result in investors losing confidence in the UK economy and more importantly the UK government. Should the strikes have a negative impact on the UK economy we could see some Sterling weakness although realistically we are expecting the political issues in Europe to continue to take the headlines.
