The closures are due to the UK national strike action by the PCS Trade Union (Public and Commercial Services Union), which will see up to 100,000 members take part. Wednesday will be the biggest day of strike action in the United Kingdom in a decade, with schools, transport, universities and security guards joining the civil service to protest pay and pensions.
