Following a GEC decision of last week we have served a new notice of industrial action in HMRC.

This means we are asking members to take a further full day of industrial action next week in pursuit of demands at the basis of the dispute.

The action will be rolled over three days (see above) with different regions involved on different days around the peak in work anticipated on Tax Credits and Self Assessment.

Members’ contribution to the campaign so far has been resolute and if this continues then PCS negotiators will be in a strong position from which to win concessions on a diverse range of issues including staffing, job security, Personnel Management and privatisation.

Promotional material will arrive at the preferred address advised to us by branches by the end of this week (25 July). In the meantime, branch secretaries are encouraged to:

Expect to receive instructions for participation in a Dial-In with the HMRC GEC Industrial Action Sub-Committee later this week or early next week.
