270,000 PCS workers to strike tomorrow
270,000 civil servants will strike tomorrow over government plans to slash the civil service compensation scheme – the amount awarded in redundancy payments. This is a precursor to massive planned cuts across the entire public sector.
The main picket lines in Brighton are Monday and Tuesday 7.30am – 9.30am at Brighton Job Centre, Edward Street. Supporters of the Brighton Benefits Campaign will be in attendance to show support from benefits claimants and resist attempts to pit claimants and Job Centre staff against each other.
There will be 30 workers on strike at the Crown Prosecution Service on Dyke Rd. Click here for map. There should also be a picket at Upper North St Tax Office (just up Dyke Rd from the clocktower). There will be a strike rally at 11.30am Monday 8th march at the Brighthelm centre.
