By February 10, 2023No Comments

Public and Commercial Services (PCS) Union, have announced a further three-day strike from Friday 17 February to Sunday 19 February (inc. the overnight shift into Monday 20 February) by Border Force staff at Calais, Coquelles, Dunkirk and Dover.

The UK Government continues to make preparations to minimise queues at the border. For more information please see the news story link on the government website.

The Home Office has provided an Industrial Action Toolkit centred on the UK borders, to share with MedTech suppliers. The toolkit provides an update on the proposed strike action by the PCS union on 17 -20  February 2023.

Hopefully there is some helpful information in the slides, and if you have any further questions please send them to the MDCC inbox (
