Staff at Windsor Castle have voted to take industrial action in a row over pay.

Members of the Public and Commercial Services union voted by 84% in favour of action short of a strike, which could start from the end of April.

The union said the wardens carry out extra duties such as giving tours of the castle to fee-paying visitors, without pay.

The 76 wardens involved in the dispute are employed by the Royal Collection Trust, working at the entrance to the castle, around the grounds and inside the palace.

PCS general secretary Mark Serwotka said: “These loyal workers are the public face of Windsor Castle and with this vote their message to their employer is loud and clear.

“Staff should be properly rewarded for their commitment to ensuring visitors from around the world can fully enjoy their time at the castle.”
