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.
Talks were held with Birmingham Airport Air Traffic Ltd regarding the 2018/19 pay claim, in June of this year.
Following a conference motion passed this year, we are talking to employers in the group about ensuring facility time for our reps to carry out the responsibilities for which they were elected.
