15 June 2011
61.1% of members voted in favour of strike action and 83.6% in favour of action short of strike, on a turnout of 32.4%.
The PCS result follows yesterday’s announcement of votes in favour of strike action by teaching unions. The PCS NEC has agreed to co-ordinate action with education unions, which will lead to the biggest strike in a generation.
The NEC has agreed unanimously that unless there are significant concessions from the government, a 24 hour strike for 30 June 2011 will be called. This will be followed by an overtime ban throughout July.
The NEC would like to thank all members and activists for their continued work and support.
Further information will follow shortly.
