Outstanding walk out over deskilling

Issue No. 2160

More than 300 PCS civil service workers’ union members working in three debt management and banking centres for the Revenue and Customs department struck for half a day on Friday of last week.

The workers, who are based in Glasgow, Manchester and Southampton and chase outstanding tax, are angry over the deskilling and downgrading of work.

They followed up the afternoon’s action with a work to rule from Monday of this week.
