Update on ongoing talks
We have had several examples recently within NATS operational positions of members being asked to train others where training is not part of their role or negotiated grade. When the member has declined, they have been threatened with additional sanctions.
In alliance with the Campaign Against Climate Change Trade Union Group, PCS and other unions have drawn up an open letter to show trade union support/solidarity with the anti-fracking activists that were jailed last week.
Facility time for trade union activities is fundamental to getting the job done. But cost efficiencies are making it increasingly difficult to secure release. In a rapidly evolving but highly unionised industry like aviation, it’s in everyone’s interests to make sure reps can attend meetings.
As a national union at the forefront of the environmental agenda, PCS has many policies advocating for action against climate change, including on aviation. BUT that doesn’t mean the union forgets its own workers. Here we explain why.
