Civil servants united over pensions

14 November 2011

The three civil service unions with members across all government departments have voted to strike over pensions on 30 November.

Prospect - which represents professional workers - and the FDA - which represents senior civil servants - announced their ballot results today (Monday 14 November).

PCS members voted to strike over pensions, pay and jobs in a ballot in June.

FDA members voted 81% for industrial action on a 54% turnout.

Prospect members voted 75% to strike on a 52% turnout.

Five other union ballots were due to close today.

Twenty-eight unions are expected to support industrial action over pensions on 30 November.

PCS general secretary Mark Serwotka said: "These are resounding ballot results and, in the case of FDA, clearly shows that the government's senior civil servants don't agree with their ministers. Like us, they're saying that the political choice taken to raid public sector pensions to help pay off the deficit is not only unnecessary, it's grossly unfair."
