There are over 1000 workplaces, courts, offices, tribunals, prisons within the MoJ, and PCS has members in virtually every one.

We recognise the critical importance communications play in involving members of the MoJ in the union’s activities.

While face to face communications and newsletters and our quarterly journal, "justice matters", will continue to be important, we hope that this website will play a central role in ensuring we are able to give information rapidly and to seek the input and involvement of members in PCS in the MoJ group.
