HMRC Strikes will Hit Call Centres
More than 400 HMRC workers to go on strike for 18 days in May and June
The Public and Commercial Services (PCS) Union said 432 of its members working as customer service advisers in Glasgow and Newcastle-upon-Tyne will walk out on May 10-12, 15-19, 22-26, 29-31 and June 1-2.
The union predicts the walkouts will cause “significant problems” for businesses across the UK, with services including HMRC’s employer helpline, Student Loans Unit and PAYE registrations set to be affected.
The announcement came amid a dispute over pay, pensions, jobs and redundancy between the PCS and the government.
