❗UK Port Industrial Action TOMORROW❗

PML is monitoring the situation following the announcement that more than 100,000 civil service members of the Public and Commercial Services (PCS) union will be going on strike on Wednesday, 15 March 2023

Following a nationwide ballot in February, HMRC members of PCS agreed to industrial action and therefore, some HMRC staff will be taking part. The action will include UK-based Home Office members, including Border Force staff.

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.

PML respects and supports workers’ rights to fair and just working conditions and wages conducive to keeping up with the increased cost of living.

Customers may experience delays and some disruption on the morning of 16 March as business returns to normal.

PML UK-based Account Managers will monitor and work with our customers’ logistic teams to take the necessary steps to minimise disruption and delays.

As always, PML will keep its customers up-to-date on the changing situation and will work tirelessly to ensure that goods arrive at their final destinations as quickly as possible under challenging circumstances.
