12 April 2013

The Public and Commercial Services (PCS) union has confirmed that it will be asking members across the civil service to participate in industrial action. The action will consist of a number of one day strikes across Home Office business areas on 16, 17, 18 and 19 April 2013.

We are currently implementing well-rehearsed local contingency plans to deal with the strike action and do not expect any significant disruption. Our top priority is to ensure the continuation of our public-facing services and our public offices will remain ... open for business.

We will contact any customers who have appointments, and may be affected, to reschedule appointments as necessary. If we do not contact you, you should attend you appointment as arranged.

If you call one of our customer contact centres you may experience longer than usual wait times. We would ask you to be patient and we will answer calls as quickly as possible.

We apologise for any disruption to services that may occur as a result of this industrial action.
