Civil servants start voting in national strike ballot
More than a quarter of a million members of the Public and Commercial Services union (PCS) will start voting this week in their national strike ballot over cuts to pensions, jobs and pay.
Ballot papers will start arriving from tomorrow (25th) following a decision at the union's annual conference last week. The ballot closes on 15 June.
The union is working closely with education unions that are also balloting over pensions or have already voted and taken strike action, bringing the total considering industrial action to 750,000 union members.
The PCS calls for: no detrimental changes to pensions or the civil service redundancy scheme; a strengthening of the Cabinet Office-agreed measures to avoid compulsory redundancies; an end to the pay freeze and a fair pay rise for all.
