HMRC union ‘huge’ turnout

Last week’s strike by public sector workers in protest against pension reforms attracted ‘unprecedented’ support according to the unions representing most HMRC staff.

An HMRC spokesman told Tax Journal that about 55% of HMRC staff took part according to the department’s own estimates.
