House of Commons security guards to vote on negotiated offer

After voting for strike action, talks with management have achieved a successful outcome.

Last year over 250 PCS members working as security guards in Westminster voted for strike action over changes to their shift patterns.

PCS suspended the strike action to allow for negotiations to take place.

A working party of reps and management was established at the end of last year and has worked through the shift rosters in detail. The PCS team has worked hard to achieve changes that would be acceptable to our members, and we have reached a satisfactory conclusion judged against our objectives.

Members will now be balloted on the offer and reps are recommending acceptance. The ballot will be online and run from 29 January until 11 February.

The branch will be holding drop-in sessions between now and the closing date of the ballot to answer any questions members might have.
