PCS to look for strike negotiations?

The organisation is ready to strike on June 30th.

15 June 2011

Civil servants have backed moves for industrial action over cuts to their pension, jobs and pay.

Some 61.1 per cent of Public and Commercial Service Union (PCS) members who voted are in favour of going on strike, while 83.6 per cent back other forms of protest.

Unless union bargaining can find a resolution to the problem, then widespread disruption to services is likely as there are over 290,000 people in the organisation.

PCS general secretary Mark Serwotka said the result shows that workers will not sit back while some of the money they have earned is "taken from them".

"The very modest pay and pensions of public servants did not cause the recession, so they should not be blamed or punished for it," he added.

Mr Serwotka observed that PCS members will take to the picket line on June 30th if the government does not backtrack over its plans.
