Civil Service strike may hit elections

The Civil Service
PCS is planning a strike on 1st May,
followed by 2 weeks of working to rule, which may impact on the elections set
for 3rd May. 

PCS have issued an open letter to Sir Gus O'Donnell Head of the Home Civil Service about the NEC's decision.

The letter sets
out clearly why
members feel they are faced with no other option than to continue with
industrial action to achieve their reasonable and achievable demands which are:

  • No compulsory
    redundancies and relocations
  • A fair and equal pay
    system with increases above inflation
  • No more outsourcing
    without consultation and agreement
  • Adequate resources and
    decent working conditions
  • No cuts in the civil
    service compensation scheme

PCS has been and remains willing
to meet with you or your officials either directly or through an independent
third party such as
ACAS to try to avoid further industrial action by
resolving our dispute. With this in mind I thought it would be helpful if
PCS put on record publicly what
we have made clear at meetings would be the basis on which the dispute could be
resolved. (source).

As I
warned in earlier blogs, now that government has created useless consultancy
style departments, and the Civil Servants have unwittingly done their work,
setting up the building blocks for a totalitarian
state, the government say they are no longer needed, and are being treated as expendable
resources being replaced by outsource contracts.


– Destroying
from the inside out.
