Steve Ryan is the branch secretary for the PCS North Wales Revenue and Customs. He says today's strike is about pay and pensions.
PCS union rep Steve Ryan said that early estimates are that up to 90 percent of staff in Wrexham have joined the one day strike.
Speaking to reporter Ian Lang at the picket line at Wrexham tax office he said: "This is about protecting public services and jobs. We believe there is a fairer alternative to austerity."
The Government said "pay restraint" had helped protect jobs and its pensions remain "among the very best available" after civil servants announced a strike:
Union members are protesting as part of a long-running dispute with the UK Government over pay and pensions, with thousands of public sector workers staging a 24-hour strike today.
Members of Britain's largest civil service union will strike today over pay and pensions.
The Public and Commercial Services Union (PCS) announced the strike after a ballot at the start of March.
Sites affected include job centres, tax offices and benefits offices, DVLA branches and some museums and galleries.
The union says its members want to "stop attacks on their livelihoods and job security".
Business in the National Assembly has been severely curtailed today because of the effects of a strike by civil servants belonging to the PCS union. Labour and Plaid Cymru politicians won't attend the Senedd because they won't cross picket lines.
Conservative and Liberal Democrat AMs will attend and there'll be a very short debate in the Senedd chamber criticising the Welsh Government's record of running public services in Wales. There'll also be a meeting of the Business and Enterprise committee.
