Are the unions really set for a comeback?

Weeks before the general election there were rumours that many of the unions in the UK were already looking to plan industrial action in the event that the Conservative party and/or a coalition government was formed. At the time these accusations were dismissed by the Labour Party although slowly but surely the situation is beginning to emerge. It seems that Unions in the UK, after backing Ed Miliband, are now set for a prolonged period of industrial action which could well cripple the UK economy and especially hit the public sector.

Indeed the unions have already announced plans for industrial action at the BBC to coincide with the Conservative Party conference which could see the Prime Minister's speech omitted from one of the U.K.'s main broadcasters. This is taking the situation to a political level and leaves the Labour Party and the unions open to intense criticism from the business arena and UK voters. However, only 24 hours after Ed Miliband was voted into power at the Labour Party it seems that the unions are already flexing their muscles and attempting to push about the up-and-coming leader.

Can Ed Miliband take on the unions or have the unions already taken the younger brother under their wing?
