Motion text

That this House sends solidarity to members of the Public and Commercial Services Union (PCS) in HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) taking action in defence of their services and jobs and to resist privatisation; recognises the pressure the workforce is increasingly under to mask job cuts; condemns attempts to divide workers by implementing a punitive performance management system that seeks to penalise 10 per cent of its staff every year; is dismayed at announcements to close a further 23 locations across the UK in June 2014 as part of an ill-conceived plan to cut 22,000 jobs and the closure of all 281 UK tax enquiry centres which forces pensioners and those most in need to contact understaffed contact centres or use the internet to get help with their tax affairs; commends PCS for its constructive attempts to negotiate a solution; and urges HMRC to enter into meaningful talks with the union and take action to reverse the cuts, centralisation and privatisation, ensuring proper staffing levels across the Department.
