PCS union unveils three-month action plan

The Public and Commercial Services union says a Budget-day strike will be the first event in a three-month long protest against budget cuts, to include:

  • An all-day strike on 20 March with rallies and demonstrations in key locations, including Westminster
  • Further national and group strikes of varying durations, including half days and short walkouts, timed to have the greatest impact
  • Industrial action short of a strike, including a national overtime ban until 20 June
  • Disruptive action in groups
  • Strike days interspersed with other protests and campaigning activities around specific themes
