ADC 2018 carried motion A44 which instructed the NEC to conduct a widespread consultation on the proposal that rule changes are made that ensure that at least 50% of the ordinary NEC seats are filled by women candidates. PCS is a union with 60% women members but our democratic structures do not fully reflect this fact.
The motion also called for work to be stepped up to remove barriers to the participation of women in the activities of the union at workplace, branch and group levels and to include this work in the consultation.
Read the consultation document and then please answer the 2 questions about the possible rule changes.
The consultation will run until 1 February.
