PCS Bootle Taxes branch would like to thank all members who left early/arrived late/walked out over the last two days to protest against HMRC’s new attendance management policy.
There was strong support throughout the branch, with just a small handful of non-members left in Litherland House and 800+ people taking action at The Triad.
Members staged an hour walk-out at 4pm on Tuesday, a “walk-in” at 10am on Wednesday, and two hours of lunchtime strike action on the same day. This included a rally at the front of the strand where members heard how the attendance management policy was another way of getting rid of jobs on the cheap under the government’s cuts agenda and reps handed leaflets to the public emphasising that this fight was for the services we provide to the public as well as for our jobs, pensions and terms & conditions.
We would also like to thank those not directly involved in the dispute who came to show support and solidarity, as it is good to know that despite the media’s propaganda war there are still plenty of people out there who support our cause.
