PCS Union have voted to undertake strike action.
The UK's largest civil service union has voted for strike action in a row over job losses, pay and pensions.
The Public and Commercial Services Union (PCS) says 61% of those who voted in a national ballot opted to strike. Turnout among the union's 250,000 members balloted was 28%.
The PCS, which wants a 5% pay rise, or £1,200, says potential walkouts could clash with the Budget later this month.
The government said the results of the ballot were "disappointing".
The union, whose members include job centre, benefits and tax office workers, said its national executive committee will decide the exact nature of the action on Wednesday.
The turnout was low but it was higher than the PCC Elections and the results of the PCC Elections are perfectly valid. So tomorrow the PCS Union are going to decide exactly what their plan of strike action will be.
PCC Elections turnout: 15% - PCS Union turnout: 28%
