We all need a pay rise: Wednesday 15th October

Guidance for shift workers 14 to 16 October

This guidance is specifically for members who are rostered to work shifts during the strike action called by PCS for Wednesday 15th October. Members are asked to adhere to this guidance which supersedes any previous advice issued.

Shift workers are only being asked to take strike action for one shift.

Members will be called on to take strike action in the following priority order:

  1. a) Members who are due to work a shift that starts and finishes on the 15 October should not report for work for that shift;
  2. b) Members who are not working a shift entirely within 15 October and who are starting a shift on 15 October that crosses over into 16 October will be called upon not to report for work on the 15 October and not to work any part of that shift that crosses over into 16 October;
  3. c) Members who are not covered by ‘a’ or ‘b’ above and are due to work a shift that crosses over from 14 October to 15 October will be called on not to report for work at the start of that shift on 14 October and not to work any part of that shift that crosses over into 15 October.

If you require any further clarification on the guidance in this briefing please initially contact your branch secretary for advice.

Jobs & Staffing Campaign – Further Action Called

Following a decision by the GEC last week, PCS has served a new notice of industrial action  in HMRC which means we are asking members to take a further full day of instrustrial action next week in pursuit of demands at the basis of the dispute. The action will be rolled over three days with different regions involved on different days around the peak in work anticipated on Tax Credits and Self Assessment.

The action will be staged as follows:

Wednesday 30th July: North West England and Wales
Thursday 31st July: Scotland and Midlands
Friday 1st August: Northern (inc. Cumbria, Yorkshire & Humber, Eastern, London & South East, South West & Northern Ireland.

We urge all to support the campaign on the 30th to ensure our negotiators in PCS are in the strongest position to win concessions on the various issues we are campaigning to improve, including staffing, job security, personnel management and privatisation.
