First Division.

So the Sir Humphreys aren't for striking unlike their "lower" level colleagues.

"SCOTLAND'S senior civil servants have voted against joining their lower-paid colleagues in striking over pay. Members of the First Division Association (FDA) have voted not to take any industrial action and to accept a pay offer of around 2 per cent."

It might have something to do with this later story ...

"THE Scottish Government is drawing up plans to split from the UK civil service machine, following demands from SNP ministers. Sir John Elvidge, the top civil servant at the Edinburgh administration, has revealed that he has begun a "substantial exercise" to examine how the 15,000-strong civil service department may become an independent organisation."
