A strike by 25,000 British border staff aimed at \’inflicting maximum pain\’ on the eve of the Olympics has been called off this morning.
The Home Office has averted 24 hours of industrial action by members of the Public and Commercial Services Union (PCS) at airports tomorrow after agreeing a last minute deal.
PCS general secretary Mark Serwotka says 800 new jobs will be created in the UK Border Agency and 300 in passport offices.
I\’d wait a couple of months. Train up a few more people. Then renege on the deal.
Serwotka has quite clearly indulged in a little blackmail here and there\’s no shame in cheating a blackmailer out of the demanded reward.
