Some 68 percent of members in the PCS civil service workers’ union voted to back strike action in the union’s long-running battle over job cuts, pay and privatisation.

The cabinet office last week said it was ready to enter meaningful negotiations over the issues.

The union’s national executive has agreed to enter the talks and not call national action while they are taking place.

But the national executive also decided that if any PCS members are faced with compulsory redundancy notices during the talks with the employer, it will immediately reconvene to consider a date for national strike action.
