• Threatened long delays at ports for truck drivers this summer have been averted after immigration officers voted to end their long-running work-to-rule over changes to shift working. The potential strike Which would have brought chaos to ports and airports was averted after immigration staff's representatives met employers at the conciliation service ACAS.
The industrial action resulted in delays at a number of ports, particularly Portsmouth, and was set to escalate to a full strike. But a spokeswoman for the PTC union, which represents immigration workers, says the matter has been resolved and there will be no more delays caused by the action.
