Action for Rail
The National Pensioners' Convention (NPC), to which ARMS is affiliated, is supporting the TUC organised ‘Action for Rail’ campaign and is asking affiliates to participate in the following activities:
The National Committee met on 6 March.The guest speaker was Jeff Evans, head of the new PCS ‘Department of the Regions & Nations’.
Jeff told the meeting that responsibility for ARMS was now part of his remit because there is a strong link between ARMS and the regions, which he hoped would become stronger.
He sees ARMS as an integral part of PCS and his department will be looking to expand its role and membership in the future. A good discussion then followed about the ARMS ‘Review’ being undertaken by Peter Harris and the improvements needed to re-energise our work.
