PCS union to seek support over strike action

The Government is facing a fresh strike by civil servants after a union announced it is balloting 250,000 of its members in a row over pay, pensions and working conditions.

The Public and Commercial Services union (PCS) warned of a series of walkouts across England, Wales and Scotland, adding that it would seek support from other unions about co-ordinated action.

Voting will start on February 8 and close on March 4, raising the threat of pre-Easter stoppages.
