"My rep gave me the union form and I joined from there. When I saw the conference motions booklet I naively thought that employers just agree to all our demands, not realising that we'd need to negotiate with them. That's what prompted me to get involved and turn our aspirations into reality." Janice Godrich, PCS president
PCS is a member-led organisation. Our strength comes from bringing together members across a wide range of different jobs and workplaces.
With a strong membership the union gains credibility and this strengthens your voice in the workplace.
So we want to find new ways of introducing members - you - to union activity and to give you the support you need to become more active.
So how do I get started?
Becoming a workplace rep isn't the only way of getting more active. There are lots of ways you can become an active member - it really depends on what you are interested in and what you would like to try.
Contact the PCS Organising Department (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
Also take a look at our activists' magazine, Activate. It has loads of news and information as well as being a helpful resource to help with organising, campaigning and representing members.
