HMRC Strike - No One Will Notice!


The Public and Commercial Services (PCS) Union has confirmed 432 HMRC workers will go on strike for 18 days in May and June amid a campaign over pay, pensions, job security and redundancy terms.

The union said members working as customer service advisers in Glasgow and Newcastle-upon-Tyne will walk out on 10 May for three days. 

They will also walk out between 15 and 19 May, 22 and 26 May and 29 and 31 May, as well as 1 and 2 June.

Given that calls are not answered, or cut off and letters remain unopened for months; no one will notice this "strike"!

Tax does have to be taxing.

  1. I was going to say exactly the same thing. Not to worry, The Muppet Show has robust plans in place to deal with every eventuality.

  2. Nine Billion has been lost. Nine thousand million pounds. How many Band O grades, working from home would that pay for?

    How many food banks would that fill? Elderly heating bills paid for?

  3. Wonderful, unbiased journalism from The Torygraph. When in doubt, just blame the staff and their gold plated pensions. Never the managers, cost cutting or office closures.

  4. They're too busy accepting gongs and worshipping at the digital temple as a cure to all ills. The criminal fraternity, however, are far more concerned with bleeding the country dry...

    They've lost most of the people that can deal with this criminality. The department is nothing more than a morale sapping shithole.

  5. HMRC are greedy scumbags

    1. Well that really added to the debate!
      Would you care to share how you came to draw that conclusion?

  6. What debate?
    Us tax payers know they are greedy, dishonest scumbags.

    A lot of people on here say they are bullying scumbags , even there own staff fall victim.

    Some fella on here was even saying they are "common purpose" scumbags acting for the world economic forum !! Conspiracy nut or truth teller ?
    Something smells very off with hmrc.

    1. Conspiracy nut.

    2. Definitely they ares vile scummers

  7. Contractors are experiencing long delays and even being.....cut off...from the helpline.

    Is anyone holding this shitshow accountable?

    They never tire in grovelling to Ministers and saying how sorry they are. That the service levels aren't what they should be. We're doing XYZ to improve etc etc.
