Civil servants in pay strike

First published in News

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.

Heres a radical idea.
Instead of announcing they're going on strike.
How about going on strike and seeing if anyone really notices.

I doubt anyone will notice the tax office being closed.....until they go to visit and discover that they were all closed as of Tuesday but it's not strike action it's policy because people prefer to use the phone or go online, apparently.

I don't blame them. I have recently left the civil service and staff are fed up with the worsening conditions. They see MPs and senior civil servants get large pay rises yet they get hardly anything. I got 2 pay rises of one per cent in 5 years which did not cover the increase in my pension contributions let alone all the other increases in my bills. The staff are treated like sh*t and have difficulty using their leave allowance as time off is often refused. All they want is fair treatment.
