More than one million public sector workers went on strike today over pay and pensions, including teachers, civil servants, coastguards, civilian police staff and prison staff, with services across England and Wales being severely affected as a result.

Members of several unions, including the National Union of Teachers, Unison, GMB, Unite and The Fire Brigades Union (FBU) walked out in a row over planned changes to their pensions, which the Government considers to be “fair to all taxpayers”.

As a result, about half of the public schools in England and Wales were affected, while courts and probation services have also been disrupted, and driving tests cancelled. Further disruptions will be recorded at Jobcentres and tax and benefit offices.

Tensor’s WinTA clocking and time and attendance systems deal with all aspects of worker absenteeism, including email warnings when manning levels are low.

Manning levels in WinTA.NET are based upon employee skills required during the working week. Any shortfalls to the expected requirement, due to absenteeism for example, can trigger a system email.

Both the WinTA Lite and WinTA Enterprise time and attendance systems can be integrated with Personnel Software which offers features that will save time and aid strategic planning, especially in emergency situations (strikes, natural disasters, etc.).

The software includes features such as: Training Information for pending courses, including locations, descriptions and notes; Letter Writer including mailmerge functionality; and Pay Reviewer including reports, projected pay increases and salary expenditure.
