Civil service

Issue No. 1916

THE CAMPAIGN for decent pay in the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) is still ongoing. Some 85,000 DWP workers in the PCS civil servants’ union rejected a pay offer last November.

Since then workers have struck for two days on three occasions.

Now the union is locked in talks with management.

Martin John is a member of the union’s group executive in the DWP. He says, “The London Region has demanded that the union name further strike dates. Activists should send in similar resolutions to the group executive.”
