We All Need A Pay Rise – Strike For Better Pay on 10th July! 02/07/2014

Posted by pcsdwpsheffield in Uncategorized.
We are urging members to strike on 10 July and join millions of public sector workers across the UK who have had enough of having their pay frozen or capped.

Pay campaign landing page

Our national executive took the decision today to back joint action with other unions, following an overwhelming 73.7% yes vote of those who voted in a consultative ballot, which ended yesterday, asking members to back our ‘We all need a pay rise campaign,’ starting with a 1-day strike on 10 July.

The campaign will continue after 10 July with targeted action and potentially more joint union action.

We have sought central talks on our national pay claim of:

£1,200 or 5% for all civil service and related staff

We must force the government to end the pay cap, to succeed with it.

We have an existing industrial action mandate but our annual delegateconference in Brighton in May agreed to ask our members to vote ‘yes’ in a consultative ballot on our national campaign running from 12-30 June.

Strength of feeling

Members have voted to take action for fair pay, alongside colleagues from other unions, including teachers and local government workers. NHS workers and others will be balloting for joint action in the autumn.

Now it’s time to show your strength of feeling by joining one of the largest strikes for decades on 10 July:

  • End the government’s pay freeze
  • Win a fair settlement on our pay claim.

We have been campaigning for meaningful national negotiations on pay, jobs, and terms and conditions. Sending a clear, united message on 10 July is the best way to put pressure on the government to come to a fair settlement.

What can I do?
