The influences on the working lives of PCS members now extend far beyond the borders of the UK and Ireland.
Economic crises don't respect national boundaries, as we are all engaged in the struggle to protect our public services. PCS has built up good relationships with sister trade unions around the globe and through European and global trade union federations to promote and protect our members' interests and concerns.
In many countries trade unionists risk intimidation or jail for active membership of a union. Solidarity is the very basis of trade unionism, and it shouldn't stop at national borders.
PCS is proud to campaign for human rights and against inequality and injustice.
Solidarity and Human Rights
National demonstration for Palestine
On Saturday, 11 May thousands will take to the streets of London for the National Demonstration for Palestine. The trade union movement has a proud history of supporting struggles for freedom, justice and equality across the world, and we will make our voices heard for Palestine.
PCS is urging members to support the demonstration to show the people of Palestine that they are not alone in the struggle for their fundamental rights.
