Thousands of staff from Revenue and Customs will go on strike tomorrow in the latest phase of months of industrial action by civil servants in a row over jobs, pensions and terms and conditions.
Members of the PCS Union will stage a half-day walkout until lunchtime. Officials say it will disrupt the start of the new tax year.
These strikes are part of an ongoing campaign of industrial action and protests to cause disruption for the Government at key times and put pressure on ministers who are refusing to even talk to us.
Civil and public servants are working harder than ever to provide the services we all rely on but instead of rewarding them, the Government is imposing cuts to their pay, raiding their pensions and trying to rip up their basic working conditions.
