Workers in the United Kingdom organize new strikes for wages

London, Apr 18 (Prensa Latina) More than 600 workers in employment centers in the United Kingdom are organizing new strikes for better working conditions, wages and pensions, the Public and Commercial Services (PCS) union announced today.

According to the organization, staff at 13 sites in Glasgow and Liverpool will be off work for five days from May 2, also in protest against the announcement of local job closures and the neglect of grievances.

This week, PCS members staged a walkout at the Passport Office and the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency, an action ahead of a nationwide strike of 133,000 civil servants scheduled for Friday, April 28.

For the group’s general secretary, Mark Serwotka, the initiative “will seriously disrupt the Department for Work and Pensions’ ill-intentioned plans” and urged ministers to shape a significant offer.

Pay disputes between government and public sector representatives in the UK are one of the key issues in the country, exacerbated since last year and mediated by the economic and political crisis.
