Tax office staff on strike

Tax office staff went on strike on Monday in support of a 2.5% pay claim and extra cash to help pay for health insurance. The government has offered a 2% pay rise. Prison officers have also taken industrial action in support of the claim. Further strikes by tax officers are scheduled for next week.
