PCS members at HMRC to strike as part of 'long weekend' of walkouts by civil servants

Half-day strike will disrupt introduction of RTI

TENS OF THOUSANDS of HMRC staff are to strike on Monday in protest over pay, pensions and working conditions.

Members of the Public and Commercial Services (PCS) union in HMRC will stage the half-day strike as part of a ‘long weekend’ of walkouts by civil servants and related bodies, beginning at 1pm today.

The walkout is part of a three-month programme of industrial action and protests, which began with a national strike on Budget day last month.

The timing of the HMRC walkout is designed to disrupt the start of the new tax year and the introduction of ‘real time information’, whereby employers who operate PAYE are required to notify HMRC immediately every time they pay their staff and make deductions, PCS said.
