PCS have published the transcript of an undated document entitled "Update for Ex Com on Employee and Industrial Relations" written by Jonathan Donovan, HMRC's Deputy Director Employee Relations and Advice.
It is not the most well crafted of documents I have ever encountered; the grammar and spelling leave much to be desired, eg page 2:
"..ARC have called of their dispute with HMRC.."Notwithstanding that, the document boils down to saying relations with ARC are "normalised" but relations with PCS need to be improved, or its influence marginalised "by maintaining dialogue only to meet statutory minimum requirements".
The writing has been on the wall for many years, quite why this has taken PCS by surprise now is beyond me.
Tax does have to be taxing.
