For activists

Information for existing PCS activists and reps.

Being a rep is a deeply rewarding role, ensuring that there is an effective union branch and representation for members, as well as running both local and national campaigns.

Reps are the backbone of PCS across the civil service and related areas, and provide us with a voice in every workplace.

Information and resources for reps can be accessed by logging into PCS Digital. When you've logged in you can access articles on a wide range of subjects including employment law and health and safety using the Knowledge tab. And in the resource library you will find forms, reports and spreadsheets including conference papers, expense claim forms and copies of briefings and newsletters.
