Thousands of Kent public sector workers strike today
THOUSANDS of public service workers in Kent are striking today in a row over pay and pension conditions.
Members of the Public and Commercial Services Union will be joining a quarter of million civil and public servants on the picket line throughout the country.
The union is calling for a minimum pay rise of five per cent or £1,200 for all civil servants this year.
PCS general secretary Mark Serwotka said: "This is not a one-day protest, this is the start of a rolling programme of walkouts and disruptive action to put pressure on a government that is refusing to talk to us.

"We warned more than two years ago that austerity wouldn't work and we were right. There is an alternative to cutting the living standards of hard-working public servants and our campaign is designed to make the case loud and clear.
"Civil and public servants are working harder than ever to provide the services we all rely on but, instead of rewarding them, the government is imposing cuts to their pay, raiding their pensions and trying to rip up their basic working conditions."
