The FDA union, which also represents senior civil servants, government lawyers and crown prosecutors, will join other public sector unions to strike on 23 March after 68% of members voted for action in a 52% turnout. Unlike other unions, however, FDA member will only be on strike for the morning.

FDA secretary Johnathan Baume said the vote ‘should send a strong message to government that even its own managers consider the new pension plans to be unacceptable and bad for the civil service’.
