Security staff are to ballot for industrial action that could see parliamentary business face disruption, the Public and Commercial Services union (PCS) has said.

Members of the union 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" that has been created by "overzealous" management.

If members vote in favour, it could see industrial action - including the option of going on strike - as early as March 20th.

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."

Based on research commissioned by the TUCG, the book examines why costs have risen for all items of expenditure, ranging from housing and child care to food and transport. He makes practical proposals on how these costs can be reduced. He also delivers an uncompromising message to the leaders of all mainstream Westminster Parties: it is time to end the politics of austerity, an ideological project to cut the size of the state permanently.
