Socialist Worker


Issue No. 1788

'This is the first strike in this office's history. It tells you something. This office isn't militant-people have just had enough.' That's what one of the 40 civil service strikers in London told Socialist Worker outside London's Millbank Tower, home to New Labour, on Wednesday of last week.

Some 200 workers, members of the PCS union, were striking against the unfair way workers progress up the pay scale in the Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsmen's office. The strike hit offices in London, Edinburgh and Cardiff.
