Solidarity with striking PCS civil service workers
March 9, 2010
Videos in date order

Up to 270,000 civil and public servants from across the UK held a successful 48-hour walkout over cuts to redundancy terms on March 8 and 9, 2010. RMT general secretary Bob Crow joined other trade union leaders at a strike rally in central London following a protest march through the capital. The dispute is over changes to the civil service compensation scheme which will see staff robbed of up to a third of their entitlements and see loyal civil and public servants lose tens of thousands of pounds if they are forced out of a job. The union fears that the government wants to make it easier for whoever wins the general election to cut low paid civil and public servants on the cheap.
