Budget day strikes by members of the Public and Commercial Services Union (PCS) could hit services in the Boston area.
Staff at Boston Magistrates’ Court, the job centre and North Sea Camp and among those who may be downing tools for 24 hours, as they protest against cuts which the union believes threatens members’ livelihoods and job security.
PCS general secretary Mark Serwotka told the media: “This is not a one-day protest, this is the start of a rolling programme of walkouts and disruptive action to put pressure on a government that is refusing to talk to us.”
This industrial action has been planned to take place on the day that chancellor George Osborne announces his budget for the forthcoming year.
Further strike action has been announced for early next month and more action will take place over the coming months.
