Supporting the People's Assembly demo this Saturday

PCS supports the People’s Assembly rally on 26 June and encourages our London based members to support it if you can do so safely and within Covid regulations.

The demands of the demonstration resonate with PCS members who have suffered years of pay freezes and cuts along with attacks on our pension rights. On Covid we have seen a disgraceful disregard of members health and safety in DVLA Swansea. We now face a Fire and Rehire proposal in Homes England an agency of the MHCLG.  No member should be fooled into thinking that this is a worker friendly government.

After 15 months on covid restrictions, with most of these now coming to an end, its time to stand up and be counted and make our voices heard. Many other trade unions have backed this demonstration including the NEU, Unite, FBU, UCU and the Bakers. We are pleased that our President Fran Heathcote has been asked to speak at the final rally. PCS will have a presence on the day and anyone who wants to join us can contact campaigns@pcs.org.uk in advance to find the PCS meeting point. We wish to stress again that members should only attend if you feel safe to do so.
