State Pensions may be hit by DWP strike action

Workers at the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) have voted to go on strike in a row over pay. This could affect state pension payments, processing claims and the Pension Service helpline.

Leaders of the Public and Commercial Services Union said that, of the 33% of members who voted in the ballot, 62% backed a strike.

Union leaders have not said what form the strike might take, although it did say that a two-day stoppage is an option.
