250,000 civil servants in the PCS struck today, Wednesday, against government attacks on their pay, pensions and terms & conditions. On the day that Tory Chancellor George Osborne announced far reaching cuts PCS members showed what they thought of his budget, his government and their attacks on working people.
The strike was solid across the country with picket lines across every town and city. Strike rallies were well attended. PCS national president Janice Godrich said “Reports show this strike has been one of the best supported ever, by members and the public.”
