Thousand of Passport Office workers will be on strike on Monday in a dispute over staffing shortages at the government agency.

The Public and Commercial Services Union (PCS) says hundreds of office jobs have been cut since 2010, causing a backlog in the processing of passports and many people have had their holiday plans thrown into chaos.

Bosses only agreed to meet the union to discuss staffing levels after pressure from the House of Commons home affairs select committee, the PCS claims.
