Govt faces 130 union list
Trade unions are presenting the government with a list of 130 coordinated demands today, according to reports.

The national minimum wage would apply from 18 rather than 21 as well as apprentices, according to the Guardian newspaper.

Passenger train operators would become 'not-for-profit' companies and city academy staff would be paid the same as other school staff under the demands.

Next week the Labour policy forum will meet to discuss the party's future direction and the unions, holding nearly a quarter of votes, will act as a bloc to push through their changes.

Union leaders will meet with prime minister Gordon Brown to discuss their amendment list later today.
