New year strike dates announced at the Pensions Regulator

PCS members will take 12 more days of strike action in January and February as they continue to fight for fair pay following the imposition of an unacceptable pay deal.

PCS members at The Pensions Regulator (TPR) have taken 36 days of strike action since 5 September, finishing their most recent two weeks of action on 14 December.

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.

Members are angry because TPR is only offering a pay rise of 3% while other civil service employers are paying a minimum of 4.5%, with an additional 0.5% of the overall pay pot to be targeted at the worst-paid staff.  

One member’s pay has only risen by 7% since 2014, when “council tax has gone up by 32%, my gas and electricity by 174% and my train fare by 40%”.  

The new dates will be 10, 11, 12, 16, 17, 18, 24, 25, 26, 30 and 31 January and 1 February.

The walkouts have so far 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 among TPR staff and their support for the campaign.
