Revenue staff in spontaneous protests

Several UK Inland Revenue enquiry and call centres have held spontaneous walkouts today to protest against the pressure and stress they are being subjected to over the ongoing tax credits fiasco.

A spokeswoman for the Public and Commercial Services Union – the trade union that represents Revenue staff – said there were ‘hundreds’ of people involved across centres located in Manchester, East Kilbride, Dunfermaline and Sunderland.

The 15-minute walkout was a plea for help to the board of the Revenue. The spokeswoman said that staff were looking for ‘more staff, more reliable computer systems, better support from managers and better training’.

A spokesman for the Inland Revenue said the protests were very isolated incidents and had no material effect on the Revenue’s operations.
