Members of the Public and Commercial Services union (PCS) are walking out in a half-day strike in protest against cuts in pay, pensions and terms and conditions.
PCS members are facing whopping hikes in rent, pension contributions, gas, electricity, and public transport prices. Yet successive Governments have frozen or capped their pay below the rate of inflation. This industrial action is being organised to send a message to the Government that PCS members will not pay for an economic crisis that was caused by super-rich tax avoiders and fat-cat bankers. Ministers need to get round the negotiating table with union leaders and meet the union's reasonable demands."
