PUBLIC sector workers in Weston joined thousands of their colleagues from across the country in taking strike action last week.

Members of the Public and Commercial Services Union (PCS) from the town Job Centre formed picket lines on High Street on May 10 as part of a nationwide 24-hour strike.

The strike was called after a dispute between the Government and unions over pension changes.
