Security guards at Westminster Palace ballot for industrial action
Security guards at Westminster Palace are to ballot for industrial action.
The PCS members are angry at changes to break times, increased workloads and management’s refusal to reinstate a member of staff. The union also wants the employer to settle two cases involving PCS reps and to end the “culture of fear” which has been created by “overzealous” management.
PCS general secretary Mark Serwotka said: “The Palace of Westminster needs to pay serious attention to the demands of a key part of the parliamentary workforce. Hardworking staff are only asking for what is fair and just. They are not prepared to put up with a culture of fear. We urge management to meet with our representatives as a matter of urgency and settle this dispute.”
