Civil servants have planned a second walkout in a row over pay, following their Budget day strike.
Almost 250,000 members who work in government departments and its related bodies will hold a half-day walkout on April 5, the Public and Commercial Services union said.
A 24-hour stoppage has been called by the union on Wednesday after accusing the Government of refusing to negotiate over cuts.
A three-month programme of industrial action is also being planned, along with a fresh campaign against tax avoidance and evasion.
