Activate magazine

Activate is a resource for activists to help us organise, campaign and represent our members effectively.

If you are an active member of our union – a workplace rep, a distributor of PCS mail, a national executive member, or in any other capacity – you should read a copy.


June 2015 cover


Read and share the June issue of Activate

The latest issue looks at May's Queen's Speech, how the new bills will impact on us as a trade union and what we can do to challenge the government's anti-union and anti-public sector stance.  

We take a look at the new National Organising Strategy and what you can do in your branches and workplaces to help strengthen the union.

We report on the latest in the National Gallery dispute over privatisation and victimisation, and also campaigns over TTIP and internationally, in Brazil.

As summer comes, we look at your rights for flexible working to help with childcare, and what the law says about rising temperatures in the workplace.

Trans rep Saorsa Tweedale tells us about her experience of ADC this year and how she uses her personal experiences to help members in her branch.
