GMB Trade Union - Northern Ireland Civil Servants vote to strike

GMB members working for the civil service have voted to strike action.

Up to 200 workers will walk out in anger at the 2023/24 pay award from the Northern Ireland Civil Service (NICS) of just 2 per cent.

GMB represents members in Road Service, Rivers Agency and Forestry along with the Environment Agency.

Strike dates will be announced in the coming days.

Alan Perry, GMB Organiser, said:

“GMB members working for NICS have overwhelmingly voted in favour of taking industrial action.

"They are angry and feel insulted over what is the worst pay offer of any public sector workers

“GMB will now meet with members and other unions to agree next steps.”
