We will resist legal threat to Home Office strike

24 July 2012

The union will robustly defend any legal challenge to the planned Home Office strike on Thursday.

Commenting, a PCS spokesman said: “There are some very serious issues at the heart of this dispute – not  least plans to cut 8,500 Home Office jobs, a third of the workforce.

“We can all  see the damaging effect these cuts are having on the department’s ability to  function, whether at the borders or in the passport service.

“Our preference is  to resolve these by negotiation, and we would hope ministers would rather sit  down and talk to us, instead of going to the courts.

“It is our intention to robustly defend any legal challenge.”
