Facilities Matters issue 4

Welcome to the August edition of Facilities Matters; the monthly newsletter for union members working in Facilities Management.

This month we report on a number of PCS campaigns across the facilities management sector. We hope they give you inspiration and spur you to recruit new members and get organised in your own workplace. 

For more information email outsourcedworkers@pcs.org.uk or visit our privatised facilities workers web page and if you're not already a member, join PCS.

In this issue:

Union members win withdrawal of Mitie pay changes

Read how ex-Interserve union members have been successful in stopping detrimental pay changes by organising themselves through their trade union.

Facilities management dispute round up

Our dispute round up covers the current strike action being taken by PCS members employed by ISS at BEIS and Just Ask at the Royal Parks. Please support them if you can by sending a message of support and/or a donation to their strike fund.

Know your rights at work

This month, with many members taking strike action, we look at your rights if you and your colleagues are considering strike action.
