PCS has an office on the top floor of one of the NIPSA buildings in Wellington Park.
It can be used by branches for small meetings and video conferencing and can accommodate about 3 people comfortably.
Principally for health, safety and security reasons these facilities need to be pre-booked.
If you want to check availability or book the room contact Fiona Low firstname.lastname@example.org.
Booking confirmation and instructions will be emailed by return.
Mark Serwotka has been re-elected unopposed for a fourth term as our general secretary.
PCS is launching a fighting fund to support members taking targeted industrial action, as agreed by annual delegate conference.
The fund will support members taking sustained strike action in workplaces in which such action could be capable of exerting significant pressure on the government to enter into national negotiations over the key issues in our dispute: pay, pensions, jobs, terms and conditions, and privatisation.
Sustained targeted industrial action has proved a successful tool in trade union disputes throughout history, but has to be funded to ensure the members involved are not left in poverty.
For more information on the fighting fund, how to make a voluntary donation and the strategy, visit the fighting fund.
We are asking all members to do something very simple but very important – get ready to switch payment of your subs to direct debit.
It only takes a few minutes but means if your employer imposes any changes to how your subs are collected, you will remain protected by your union's membership.
We won’t take money from your account unless your employer stops deducting your union subscriptions, or we decide to end check-off, so there’s no danger of you paying twice.
Any problems call one of our dedicated team on 0800 317 464 (free) or 020 7801 2670/2680 from 7am to 7pm (Monday-Friday), or use the Live Chat on this page.
The Cabinet Office has written to each government department, stating that check-off the decades-old practice of collecting your monthly union subs directly from your salary is “undesirable” and asking each department to review it.
We are fighting so you can pay your subs your way, but it is essential we have a plan in case check-off ends.
