Rishi Sunak has invited all union leaders for what he hopes will be “grown-up, honest” talks on Monday in an attempt to end the wave of strikes.He noticeably did not rule out that the discussions could be on this year’s pay, though, it was not clear whether the Government was budging on its stance so far which has clashed with unions’ demands.Speaking on a visit to a school in Battersea, south-west London, the Prime Minister said: “Yesterday the Government wrote to all union leaders inviting them in for talks on Monday.”
