Industrial action on 15 March

Details about disruption to our services on 15 March due to industrial action and advice for those due to attend court or a COPFS office.

The PCS Union has called on its members to take industrial action on Wednesday 15 March 2023. The action is part of a UK wide PCS trade dispute relating to pay, pensions, jobs and redundancy terms in the UK Civil Service and related public sector areas. 

If you are due to attend court on this date, please continue to do so unless you are contacted directly and advised not to attend.

Our phone lines are currently closed due to industrial action. Please call back on Thursday 16 March or email

Please be advised that our response times are likely to be affected. If your enquiry is urgent, please advise so in the subject line of your e-mail. 

If you need to use the services of COPFS's public counters, please try to avoid doing so on 15 March if possible as our services are likely to be disrupted.  

Full service will resume from Thursday 16 March.
