Further strike action called at Pensions Regulator

PCS members will take 12 more days of strike action in November and December following the imposition of an unacceptable pay deal.

PCS members at The Pensions Regulator (TPR) have taken 24 days of strike action since 5 September, finishing their most recent two weeks of action on 3 November.

Due to the continued intransigence of The Pensions Regulator, their imposition of a 3% pay settlement and their refusal to engage further with PCS to resolve the dispute we have notified management that members will take an additional 12 days of action.

The new strike dates will be 22, 23, 24, 28, 29 and 30 November and 6, 7, 8, 12, 13 and 14 December 2023.

Since their return to work on Monday, 6 November, after the most recent series of walkouts, members have reported that the strikes have seriously disrupted the operation of TPR.

The branch has increased in membership from 150 to over 350 since the beginning of the strike action and it continues to grow, showing the strength of feeling amongst TPR staff and their support for the campaign.

PCS full-time official Mark Page said: “It is deeply disappointing that The Pensions Regulator has chosen to impose the pay settlement without fully exhausting consultation or taking up PCS suggestions that might assist them in meeting the 4.5% to 5% that every other civil service employer has found for their employees.”
