CPSU rejects PPF revision

The 12,000 member Civil and Public Service Union has voted by three to one to reject the PPF revision to compensate for inflation (2% this year and a 1% lump sum in 2002). While top civil service bosses and politicians have been given huge increases, most low paid civil servants can't even dream of owning a house.The CPSU executive is drawing up a pay claim and will ballot its members for strike action. An increasing number of workers are seeing through the farce of 'social partnership' where wages are controlled; but there are no restrictions on profits, house prices, childcare costs, etc.
