UK Strikes: Customs and border staff to walk out in PCS strikes
Civil Service strikes will affect UK Border Force operations for goods entering the UK on 15th March
UK-based members of the Home Office, under the Public and Commercial Services (PCS) union, will walk out once more on 15th March as part of continued industrial action in favour of improved pay and conditions. The strikes, similar to February's action, will take place for the entirety of Wednesday, 15th March and will remain in place until around 7am on Thursday, 16th March, impacting goods and travellers entering the UK.
The industrial action is likely to impact the movement of goods through UK ports, airports and Inland Border Facilities on 15 March, as well as those travelling to the UK from UK Border controls in Calais, Dunkirk and Coquelles in Northern France.
There could also be delays when contacting the National Clearance Hub (NCH) and Customs & International Trade (CIT) helpline.
We are in contact with the relevant operators and are looking into possible alternative options to avoid any potential disruption to your upcoming bookings. If you have any questions as to an upcoming booking, please contact us here firstname.lastname@example.org.
