Dear Alison

On behalf of PCS I extend the union’s solidarity with our sister union NIPSA for taking more strike action today over pay and conditions. Following the suspension of the Northern Ireland assembly, civil servants have been working as hard as possible to keep government functioning. However instead of being rewarded, they have been taken for granted and forced into continuing their industrial action campaign. The entire trade union movement needs to get behind this strike and help ensure NIPSA members get a just settlement.

Regards

Mark Serwotka,
General Secretary, PCS.

President, PCS.
