PCS members 'could go on strike again'
The Public and Commercial Services Union has refused to rule out more strike action.
Members of the Public and Commercial Services Union (PCS) could go on strike.
This is because people are not happy at government-proposed cuts to redundancy terms that are facing civil servants, meaning union bargaining may be on the cards.
General secretary Mark Serwotka noted he will be talking to other unions and his own members about "stepping up industrial action in the autumn".
Strike negotiations may be used in an effort to prevent a repeat of June 30th, when thousands of people took to the picket line to show their dissatisfaction at proposals to alter public sector pensions.
Mr Serwotka observed action is likely if "the government refuses to halt its unnecessary and deeply damaging spending cuts".
His comments come after a legal challenge to the High Court by the Prison Officers Association and PCS - which has over 290,000 members - on the terms of redundancy for civil servants was rejected.
