Civil Service: Strike Bowlers

Issue section: 

The battle for the future of the civil service has begun.

Civil servants from the PCS union have responded to Gordon Brown's 104,000 job cuts threat with a two to one strike vote. The strike was on 5 November, just after Socialist Review went to press.

This will be the first national dispute in the civil service for over ten years, bringing together benefit workers, customs officers, museum curators, librarians, tax officers, court assistants and many more.

Review of "Workers' Control", Ken Coates, Spokesman £7.99

This book is a collection of essays written by Ken Coates between the mid-1960s and mid-1970s. Although in some ways historically dated, it contains a number of debates and ideas that anyone who thinks (as the subtitle runs) 'another world is possible' will find interesting.
