Civil servants at the Home Office, Border Force and two other government departments will begin a month of industrial action from mid-December.

The PCS trade union said on Friday it had built up a “substantial strike fund” and was raising more cash to cover the dispute.

Workers, including those in the Department for Transport and Defra, will take action in a bid to stop their wages from plunging in real terms.
