Socialist Worker


Issue No. 1787

The government has made its third pay offer to workers in the DEFRA department under pressure from industrial action. The workers, members of the PCS union, used to work in the MAFF government department.

They have been holding a work to rule, overtime ban and strikes including national action to get a pay rise. Activists in the Left Unity group are calling for a no vote over the latest offer.
