HMRC nurseries' protest - Nottingham
Another protest was held on Wednesday 17th October at HMRC in Nottingham against the proposed closure of the workplace nurseries which many workers rely on. This was part of a national day of action to save nurseries at eight sites.
PCS members and supporters collected signatures on a petition that was given in to Parliament during a lobby later on in the day.
Protesters had been given a confidence boost by the extension granted to the nurseries at two HMRC sites at Cardiff and East Kilbride, as a result of high profile campaigns.
The protest received a lot of support, with the majority of people working on the site signing the petition and taking leaflets.
