Civil servants in Jersey are to take part in strikes over two days in August over the ongoing pay dispute with the government.
There will be four separate half-day strikes and members of the JCSA Prospect Union can choose which ones they take part in.
The Union says they have been 'left with no alternative', as the States are refusing to improve its latest pay offer.
It comes after both Prospect and Unite dismissed a 1% pay rise for 2018 and 2019 and the 1.3% above-inflation pay award for 2020.
Strikes are scheduled for the following times:
- Friday 23 August 2019 – 9:00am to 1:00pm
- Friday 23 August 2019 – 1:00pm to 5:00pm
- Tuesday 27 August 2019 – 9:00am to 1:00pm
- Tuesday 27 August 2019 – 1:00pm to 5:00pm
In response, the States Employment Board have said they are disappointed that members of the JCSA Prospect Union have decide to take strike action.
The union had hoped the States Employment Board would improve its latest offer by giving more annual leave to staff. However the government said it would only do that in return for an increase in working hours.
