Activate magazine

In print and online, 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 receive a copy.


Activate February cover


Read and share the February issue of Activate

The latest issue focuses on the union busting tactics of this government and how we can fight against them.  

In the run up to the general election we look at how we are campaigning politically and what you can do to get involved.

Our general secretary pays tribute to the hard work being done by reps in the direct debit campaign and we look at some successes.

We look at victimisation with a feature on the campaign to reinstate suspended rep Candy Udwin at the National Gallery .

Rep Matthew Brown talks about taking cases to Employment Tribunals and Nick Parker tells us about his anti-racist and anti-fascist campaining work in Lincoln.
