Passport Office workers to strike


Passport Office workers to strike

Sunday, 17 Mar, 2023 0

A Passport Office strike could spell disaster for the holiday plans of thousands.

Over 1,000 Passport Office workers will go on strike for several weeks from 3 April

The Public and Commercial Services (PCS) union warned of a ‘significant impact’ on the processing of passports

About one quarter of all Passport Office workers will strike.

It would impact Passport Office locations at Durham, Glasgow, Liverpool, London, Newport, Peterborough and Southport.

It could affect about one million passport applications.

The PCS union said the Passport Office strike is over an imposed, non-negotiable 2% pay rise.

The union says it was forced into the ‘significant escalation’ as ministers ‘have failed to hold any meaningful talks with us.’
