United Kingdom -Walkout as part of a three-month campaign of industrial action -April 05, 2013

After tens of thousands of civil servants, including staff in jobcentres, courts and driving test offices staged a half-day strike that caused ‘massive disruption’ the Public and Commercial Services (PCS) trade union predicted that the dispute over pay, pensions and working conditions in the public sector is to be escalated. PCS told a rally outside the Cabinet Office in Westminster that a week of strikes will be launched at the Home Office and UK Border Agency from 15 April, with different groups of workers taking action at different times.
