PCS in Solidarity 6 October

Communications, distribution and logistics

Royal Mail members of the CWU will be taking further strike action throughout October and November.  The next national strike will be on Thursday 13 October in their dispute over pay.

CWU members including 30,000 Openreach engineers and 10,000 BT call centre workers will strike today (Thursday 6), Monday 10, Thursday 20, and Monday 24 October. Today’s strike will also involve 500 emergency phone operators who answer 999 calls. There was a previous agreement that emergency call operators would be exempt from strikes, but the situation has escalated to the point where the workers feel they have no choice.

At the Port of Liverpool, Unite the Union members will be taking a further seven days of strike action between 11 and 17 October, with senior control room operators and control room operators joining the action, taking the total numbers up to 600. This follows 11 days of strike action in September/October.

Transport

Rail strikes will take place again on Saturday 8 October. The RMT union is talks with government but the strike by its members at Network Rail and 14 train operators will still take place.

Education
UCU members at 26 further education colleges are continuing their series of strikes over pay, which started on 26 September and continues until 20 October.

Health

For the first time in its 106-year history the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) is balloting 300,000 of its members for strike action over pay, following the government’s decision to award most NHS staff a 5% pay rise.

Justice

Barristers who are members of the Criminal Bar Association (CBA) are to vote on whether to end their indefinite strike action after the government proposed a new package of reforms and legal aid fees.
