Prospect pauses strike action after government offer meaningful talks

26 May 2023

Prospect has paused planned strike action in the Civil Service after the government has offered to engage in meaningful talks.

Mike Clancy, General Secretary of Prospect union, said:

“We have agreed to pause our planned strike action in the Civil Service because the government have communicated their willingness to engage in meaningful talks.

“Throughout this dispute, we have made clear that our members should not be treated worse than other workers in the public sector and that they deserve a pay deal that recognises the cost-of-living crisis that began last year.

“We are entering these talks in good faith hence our calling off the strike action due for 7 June, but we will maintain our action short of a strike and review that position in light of the talks that are promised.”
