Quotes

A HMRC spokesperson said: "We are very disappointed by the timing of the decision by PCS to call a strike to coincide with the tax credits renewals deadline."
"I’m really pleased to say the workforce is pulling together as a team, they are far more confident about themselves and the future of the company and there is a real culture change. I wish them all well for the future and hope to see Shelforce become a really successful social enterprise."
To which Mr Stoljar replied: "I don't accede to the proposition that there has been any ambush."
"It's everyone up to that level - if you earn a dollar an hour above it now, why shouldn't you earn a dollar more than the new minimum wage and go upup to $17.25 an hour?"
