Crown Prosecution staff threaten two-day strike over pay

Crown
Prosecution Service staff have started industrial action following a dispute
over their pay rise.

Members
of the Public and Commercial Services Union (PCSU), who work as administrative
staff in the CPS, have started a work to rule policy and will hold a two-day
strike on January 17 and 18.

Ted
Elsey, senior national officer for the PCSU, said the strike action was being
taken because members were not happy with the 4.5 per cent pay increase they
had been offered.

A CPS
spokesman commented, "We are disappointed they (the CPSU) have decided to
take this action because the award of 4.5 per cent is the best that can be
achieved in the particular circumstances that exist. It is towards the top end
of what other government departments have been able to offer this year."
