STAFF at the Environment Agency are among hundreds of people taking part in strike action today (Wednesday, November 30).
Catherine Tonge, branch secretary for the Public and Commercial Services union (PCS), was on the picket line outside the Environment Agency. She works for Natural England, the government statutory advisory body charged with protecting and improving England’s natural environment.
She said: “PCS is a bit different. We are not just out for pensions, we also believe there are alternatives to cuts, things like collecting uncollected taxes, and administering taxes fairly.”
