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.


June 2014 cover


Read and share the June issue of Activate

The latest issue focuses on our new pay campaign calling for the end to the pay cap. We're urging all reps and branches to play their part.

Continuing the pay theme there is a report on the 'We all need a pay rise' events held by branches on 12 June. Reps have also started using our new pay squeeze calculator to show members how much they would be earning if pay had kept pace with inflation.

An organising supplement includes reps' tips for engaging with members and preparing them for strike action. There is a guide to campaigning against LGBT hate crime and rep Charlotte Redding explains how she handled a personal case.

We also give a rundown on annual delegate conference, including debates on the national campaign, attacks on check-off, welfare and privatisation.
