Immigration Staff To Strike

(BBC) – HOLIDAYMAKERS ARE FACING DISRUPTION after the PCS union said immigration officials working for the UK Border Agency have voted for strike action.

Members voted by a large majority to take action over plans to merge the duties of immigration and customs staff, the PCS’s Alex Flynn said.

The result gives the go-ahead for a two-day walkout beginning on Wednesday, 5th August.

A spokesman for the UK Border Agency said contingency plans would be put into place to minimise disruption.
