Employees of the Pensions Regulator (TPR) are set for extra strike action as a pay dispute continues.
Approximately 400 members of the Public and Commercial Services union (PCS) plan to strike over 12 days.
The walkout, planned for Wednesday, February 28, to Wednesday, March 20, follows over ten weeks of prior protests.
PCS General Secretary Fran Heathcote said: “Our hard-working members are angry at being told TPR can’t afford to give them a pay rise to help them through the cost-of-living crisis but they can afford to pay £6 million to consultants, splash out almost £200,000 on fees and expenses for its chair and part-time board members, and spend more than £1 million on other expenses, including accommodation.
“It’s time for TPR to invest in its staff, not on jollies and outsourcing.”
