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.


November 2014 cover


Read and share the November issue of Activate

The latest issue focuses on the October week of action which saw thousands of PCS members taking strike action and marching through our city centres for the TUC Britain Needs a Pay Rise events.

We look at the direct debit campaign with a "how to..." guide on how to get members switching and top tips from a branch that is having positive results.

John Hilary of War on Want writes about the threat of TTIP and how we can campaign against it.

There is a pre-launch guide to the PCS online document library with information on how you can access it.

Rep Annette Rochester talks about her personal case work in a jobcentre in Birmingham and Sue Ghani tells us how she organises a presentation for Black History Month.
