Staff at the Bank of England began their first strike in more than 50 years Tuesday in a push for higher pay, highlighting growing pressure to end tight controls on public sector wages in Britain.The three-day strike will overlap with an interest rate decision Thursday and involves maintenance and security staff at the 323-year-old Bank. The employees, who are part of the Unite trade union, said they were protesting the "derisory" pay settlement that the bank had imposed on staff without the union's agreement.
