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.


April 2014 cover


Read and share the April issue of Activate

The latest issue asks reps to help sign over all members to direct debit in the next 12 months. 

There is a guide to speaking out against racism at work and in your community, rep John Campbell gives his tips for handling personal cases and we look at what sort of a union is Unite.

There are also articles looking at the Shrewsbury 24 Campaign, the anti-privatisation We Own It Campaign, and how our stress survey shows members in 2 departments are experiencing stress levels that are well above average.
