Earlier this month the JCSA Prospect and Unite unions announced that more than 60% of members who had taken part in a ballot had voted against their latest three-year pay deal, which was offered in May by the States Employment Board.

The offer was a 1% pay rise for 2018 and 2019, 2.1% in one-off cash payments over the two years and a 1.3% above-inflation pay award for 2020.

Many civil servants are dissatisfied that the offer does not match current inflation levels, with the most recent RPI recorded at 3.6%.

In a formal letter, JCSA Prospect has now invited its members to participate in four sessions of strike action at the following times and dates:

Friday 23 August – 9am to 1pm

Friday 23 August – 1pm to 5pm

Tuesday 27 August – 9am to 1pm

Tuesday 27 August – 1pm to 5pm
