PCS has an office on the top floor of one of the NIPSA buildings in Wellington Park which 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.
With unprecented attacks on trade union rights and only 8 weeks until the general election it has never been a better time to email your mp and ask them to commit to support trade union rights under this and the next government. Please email your MP today.
A number of trade unions will be taking industrial action against the devastating budget cuts which are being enforced as a consequence of the Stormont Agreement.
Whilst PCS members will not form part of the action, we are encouraging Groups and Branches to get members to show solidarity by visiting local pickets lines, particularly those of our sister union NIPSA.
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.
PCS has launched a fighting fund to support members taking targeted industrial action, as agreed by annual delegate conference.
