NEC meeting to agree campaign activity in November

The Executive Committee of the European Trade Union Confederation (ETUC) called for a Day of Action and Solidarity, across Europe on 14 November in order to mobilise the European trade union movement behind the ETUC policies set out in the ‘Social compact for Europe’.

The NEC of PCS will consider campaign activities for the day.
The government continues to attack the civil service and we all face a bonfire of our terms and conditions of service as the Cabinet Office demand every department reviews all terms, conditions, policies and practices - the things civil servants rely on to manage their working lives. Included are:
  • Hours
  • Leave
  • Parental and special leave
  • Childcare
  • Job sharing
  • Volunteering
  • Vacancy filling
  • Promotions
  • Attendance management.
The NEC will be considering a campaign plan involving a day of protest at the end of November against the coalition government's proposed review of civil service terms and conditions.
Members in PCS must fight to protect our terms and conditions of employment otherwise they will be driven down to the barest legal minimum by the current government.
Our NEC need to listen to ordinary members and understand the leadership role model they want. They want a leadership that fights for our members rights and not one that fights personal political gain.
