CIVIL servants will join a huge public sector strike over pay on Thursday, July 10.

The Public and Commercial Services union (PCS) have voted for industrial action.

PCS members will join striking council and school workers from the GMB union, the National Union of Teachers and Unison.

PCS members include civil servants who work at job centres, tax offices and courts.

Refuse workers, street sweepers and care staff are all expected to down tools, joining teachers, teaching assistants, social workers, bailiffs, enforcement officers, plus museum and library staff.
