Philip Hammond, the chancellor, will decide at the autumn budget in November whether to lift the pay cap for civil servants and related bodies. In the run up to the autumn budget, PCS is continuing our work to put pressure on the chancellor to do the right thing.
We are asking all members to send this e-action calling on Philip Hammond to announce major investment for our public services, including ending the pay cap for civil and public servants in the budget. Most employer’s IT policies do not allow you to send an e-action from work. So please send this from a personal email address.
Last chance for your branch to submit your views on our national pay campaign
Branches are reminded that the closing date to submit a response to the consultation exercise on our national pay campaign is WEDNESDAY 31 OCTOBER 2018. Please ensure your branch has its say on the future direction of the campaign.

The United Families and Friends Campaign (UFFC), is a coalition of those affected by deaths in police, prison and psychiatric custody, supports others in similar situations.

Sign the petition to stop the eviction of Ridley Road market traders
Over 20 Ridley Road market traders have been given just two weeks of a planned eviction. Ridley Road is the beating heart of Hackney. Many of the traders have given decades of their lives to help keep the market running. And now they are being thrown out into the street even though plans to redevelop the building as luxury flats and shops are yet to be granted planning permission. After the evictions the building is likely to be left empty for years.
