PCS ballots for strike

Issue No. 2068

The national executive of the PCS union agreed last week to hold a consultative ballot of 270,000 members on whether to stage further strikes over attacks on services, privatisation, job cuts and pay.

This follows a big consultation exercise over the summer with office meetings across the country.

This showed that many members want united action with other unions in our dispute.

PCS members have struck twice already this year, in January and May, against 100,000 job cuts, low pay and privatisation.
