Join a PCS meeting to discuss jobcentre closure

PCS is holding an emergency meeting tonight to discuss the closure of Toxteth jobcentre in Liverpool. 

The meeting is at 5.30pm at Toxteth Town Hall, 5 High Park Street, Liverpool L8 8DX. 

PCS DWP Group President Martin Cavanagh said: “This is a reckless and irresponsible decision to close a vital community resource, especially at a time of huge economic uncertainty. 

“The impact on staff who deliver this important service and the local people who rely on it is massive and it will also badly impact local businesses too, it must be stopped. 

“Cuts have consequences. We shall fight for every job in the civil service. Not just on behalf of our members, but on behalf of every member of the public who relies on the services they provide.

 “We urge people from across the local community to join us on today to discuss how we can come together to protect this much needed community resource."
