PCS: Action agreed to end pay freeze and defend working conditions

Press release from the Public and Commercial Services Union (PCS)

The union's national executive has agreed plans for a determined campaign for fair pay and working conditions, including a ballot for industrial action by more than a quarter of a million civil and public servants.

As well as lifting the pay freeze and 1% cap, the union's claim includes pay rises of 1,200 or 5% and the introduction of the living wage on government contracts, defending terms and conditions, and opposing privatisation and cuts to pensions and jobs.

The decision comes just days after the successful protests on Friday 30 November where members held lunchtime demonstrations in opposition to the government's latest attack on working conditions - including hours, holidays, flexible working and family-friendly policies - as well as cuts to jobs, pay and pensions.
