Civil servants in fresh strike threat

The coalition government is facing fresh strike action by civil servants after a union announced it is balloting 250,000 of its members in a row over pay, pensions and working conditions.

The Public and Commercial Services union warned of a series of walkouts, adding that it would seek support from other unions. The PCS has already taken three days of strikes over pay and reform to public-sector pensions.

Officials said the coalition was planning to attack hours, holidays, sick pay and flexible arrangements under a review of working conditions. But a Cabinet Office spokesman said: “It is disappointing yet again the PCS insists on pushing for futile action which benefits no-one, and damages the services its members deliver to the public.”
