Privatisation Dispute: the battle continues – 24 hour walkout confirmed for 31 January 2012

All members in PTOps will be written to shortly to encourage them to walkout for the day on 31 January

Members employed in PTOps across the UK took action on 12 December and 16 January in protest against HMRC’s decision to trial privatisation in the telephone contact centre.

The current situation is HMRC have signed contracts with two suppliers, Sitel and Teleperformance.

Both companies will be recruiting locally in the coming weeks and we expect representatives from these companies to be on site at Lillyhall and Bathgate in the lead up to trials starting in February

We are therefore asking all members in PTOps (contact centres, customer operations and in enquiry centres) to take further strike action  on 31 January.
