Fair Pay Scotland campaign
As PCS members open their pay slips this month they will see that they are worse off as a consequence of the 1.4% rise in National Insurance contributions. PCS made the case to Scottish Ministers that they could mitigate against this in their 2016/17 pay remit guidance but they chose not to. Branches across the Scottish sector will therefore be distributing leaflets to members highlighting this fact as part of our ongoing Fair Pay Scotland campaign.
In the last week of the Scottish elections we are asking members to challenge their prospective candidates on our PCS pledge:
- If elected, I will campaign to end the public sector pay cap as it is unfair, unnecessary and damaging to the economy.
In the meantime we are looking for members to become engaged in the campaign over the next few months by revisiting old pay slips and comparing them with your current one. Let us know how much worse off you are by sharing your anonymised pay slip with your local rep.
Take control of your working life. PCS is you, your colleagues and thousands of other members joining together for a strong voice and better jobs.
We are a powerful union of more than 26,000 members across Scotland, in the civil service or privatised areas. From court ushers and job centre advisers to tax inspectors and law enforcement, whatever your role PCS is the union for you.
Make sure we have your personal and email details.
