PCS conference

PCS members voted at their Annual Conference, taking place in Brighton from 22-24 May, to ballot members across the civil service for national strikes on pay.

An emergency motion from the union′s National Executive instructing the executive to ″organise a statutory ballot of members in the civil service and its related bodies on a programme of industrial action involving both all member and targeted action, to be held as soon as possible after Conference″ was overwhelmingly carried. And about time too.

PCS held a consultative ballot of members in September-October 2017, but those members have been left waiting until now for the next steps. In order to beat the new anti-union laws the union needs to get organised, and fast.

PCS conference also overwhelmingly passed policy re-affirming the union′s commitment to free movement.
