Question to the HM Treasury:
To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, with reference to paragraphs 3.2 and 4.1 of the Civil Service Pay Remit Guidance 2020-21, published by the Cabinet Office on 18 May 2020, which elements of the HM Revenue and Customs pay business case for years 2020-21 to 2022-23 have been disclosed to its recognised trade unions.
HMRC have collectively agreed their pay and working arrangement reforms with their recognised departmental unions, ARC and PCS. Union members voted in favour for HMRC’s pay and contract reform offer and HMRC have started to implement reforms.
HMRC conducted an intensive period of negotiations with trade unions to reach the collectively agreed position, based on proposals set out in the original business case. The final position agreed during these talks was then put to union members at Trade Union organised ballots, where it was strongly supported.
