Tax workers sick of new policy

Issue No. 2255

More than 50,000 workers in tax offices across Britain were set to strike this week against a draconian new sickness absence policy imposed by management.

Revenue and Customs workers were to walk out between 4pm and 5pm on Tuesday and then take a mass extended lunch break between 11.30am and 1.30pm on Wednesday.

The PCS union members are also refusing to work overtime, use private cars for work, or “cut corners”.
