All UK strike dates confirmed for February 2023

Around 100,000 workers will launch a one-day strike to coincide with chancellor Jeremy Hunt’s Budget on 15 March.

The Public and Commercial Services Union said that it was escalating its action in response to the “lack of movement from the government on our demands on pay, pensions and job security”.

“Our strategy calls sustained action in targeted areas where we can exert significant pressure on the employer, supplemented by all-member action called when its effect can be maximised,” it said.
