CUMBERNAULD Tax Office was described as “nearly empty” today, by some members of staff, after rolling strike action was called by the Public and Commercial Services union.

Members of the Public and Commercial Services union (PCS) staged strike action today (23 June) at various HMRC sites throughout Scotland, in a dispute surrounding job cuts, office closures and proposed privatisation of departments.

At Cumbernauld Tax Office, the strike was so successful that some 94 per cent of staff decided not to cross the picket, which was held up by PCS members at the facility between 5 a.m. and nearly six o’clock this evening.
