Campaign to save eight HMRC nurseries

The campaign is being stepped up against HM Revenue and Customs' decision to close eight workplace nurseries.

Protests and public meetings have been held and the PCS union is planning a national day of campaigning for Thursday 27 September.

The eight affected workplaces are in Blackburn, Cardiff, East Kilbride, Leeds, Leicester, Nottingham, Salford and Wolverhampton.

The nurseries - which are popular, affordable and of a good quality - are used mostly by HMRC staff, but some also care for children from local families.

HMRC does not subsidise places and the nurseries are run by a private company, but the decision to close them down has been taken by the department.

As well as scores of nursery workers facing redundancy, closures would leave parents high and dry without enough time to find alternative childcare. Many would have to reduce their hours, give up work or end up paying much more.
