At the 2017 General Election PCS branches in the region agreed to endorse 12 prospective parliamentary candidates (all Labour Party). Of these, 7 were elected and others came very close to winning the seats: They are:
- Chris Williamson MP – Derby North
- Greg Marshall – Broxtowe
- Lillian Greenwood MP – Nottingham South
- Catherine Atkinson – Erewash
- Valerie Vaz MP – Walsall South
- Alan Meale – Mansfield
- Jack Drommey MP – Erdington
- Peter Lowe – Stourbridge
- Mike Pringle – Sherwood
- Gloria De Piero MP – Ashfield
- Jim Cunningham MP – Coventry South
- Gareth Snell MP – Stoke Central
We should work with these MPs to campaign over members issues, and put pressure on other MPs that support government policy.
If you want any advice or support in lobbying your MP please contact, Andrew Lloyd PCS Midlands Regional Secretary.
