Home Office Industrial Action – 26th July

Members of PCS have voted for industrial action over pay, privatisation and the victimisation of their reps.
PCS members in the Home Office have faced savage job cuts with much more ‘promised’ by ministers.  The result of job cuts can be seen now at the borders but a similar fiasco exists in all areas of the department where overtime is now routinely used in an attempt to plug the shortfall. 
A pay freeze has been in place for a number of years and is expected to continue for a number more.  On several occasions PCS reps have been disciplined on dubious charges including two dismissals.  Over all of this hangs the spectre of privatisation.
The strike will take place on Thursday 26th July across multiple Home Office sites including the HQ building at Marsham Street and the London Passport Office next to Victoria Station.  Messages of support are welcome as are visits to the picket lines.
Messages of support to: Andrew Jennings, Home Office Group President (andrew.jennings@homeoffice.gsi.gov.uk) Paul McGoay, Assistant Group Secretary (paul.mcgoay@homeoffice.gsi.gov.uk) Jon Bigger, Branch Secretary IPS London Branch (jonathan.bigger@ips.gsi.gov.uk)
Thanks
