MyCSP strike negotiations on the cards?
PCS members are willing to go on strike.
Strike negotiations could be required in the UK as attempts to turn the government agency My Civil Service Pension (MyCSP) into a mutual organisation seem to be backfiring.
A ballot has been held by Public and Commercial Services Union (PCS) members in Basingstoke, Cheadle Hulme, Liverpool, Newcastle and Worthing, with 77 per cent backing a strike.
Some 87 per cent said they were for industrial action in a different form.
PCS general secretary Mark Serwotka said: "There is a severe deficit between the government's rhetoric about co-operation and mutualism and the reality of what is being imposed on staff."
He added that the organisation will do everything it can to oppose such a move, which he has termed "privatisation by another name".
It comes after Mr Serwotka stated that any attempted by those in power to quell strikes is not right.
The specialist continued by saying that employees should not be starved of the chance to take to the picket line.
