AOL Money Staff

Thousands of Revenue and Customs workers will go on strike on Monday in the latest phase of months of industrial action by civil servants in a row over jobs, pensions and terms and conditions.

Members of the Public and Commercial Services (PCS) union will stage a half-day walkout until lunchtime, which officials said will disrupt the start of the new tax year. Picket lines will be set up outside offices across the country, including call centres, processing offices and the face-to-face inquiry centres.%VIRTUAL-SkimlinksPromo%
