Tens of thousands of British workers member to the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) are voting on a strike action in a dispute over compulsory redundancies, local media reported.

The ballot was initiated by the Public and Commercial Services (PCS) union in a protest against a number of job cuts.

Balloting of union members closes on January 10 and the first walkout could be held towards the end of the month, followed by an overtime ban, The Guardianreported.

The union has 80,000 members at the DWP, which is the government’s biggest department.

Mark Serwotka, general secretary of the PCS union, said, “Ministers repeatedly claim that if people can work, they should. But at a time when welfare services are so important, here we have the very department responsible for getting people back into work and off benefits unnecessarily forcing people into unemployment.”

“In an organization of this size, it is inconceivable that work cannot be found to keep them employed”, he added.

One Response to Nazi DWP staff worried about compulsory redundancies & ending up on slave workfare

  1. All the Nazi DWP staff who make life a living misery for benefit claimants are frightened they too will end up getting the same treatment. They fear becoming major slaves whipped by the Nazi DWP slave master and forced to work for less than a third of the legal minimum-wage or face benefit sanctions for up to three years. Jobcentreplus staff had better get used to life stuck on workfare as the jobcentres close soon and all claims and signings are conducted through the Internet using biometrics bypassing the need for dictatorship Hitler wannabe STASI staff.

    You reap what you sow, if only people had listened to the conspiracy of the post-industrial zero-growth society planned and created by the Club of Rome run by the Peccei family. If only people had believed we were to become a Marxist state riddled with slave labour programmes and Big Society conditioning of being a slave in the community. Welcome to your worse nightmare called New World Order, you bloody deserve it for all your continual ignorance and aiding of this NWO.
