Big win for PCS in OCS as members vote to accept pay offer

06 May 2021

Members in OCS vote overwhelmingly in favour of pay offer following successful PCS campaign.

Members who are court security officers have voted overwhelmingly to accept the two-year pay settlement offer which improves pay, terms and conditions after the PCS OCS consultative ballot over pay, terms and conditions closed at noon today (6 May).

This is a huge achievement for our members and a victory worth celebrating: OCS made the offer only after members had voted in favour of strike action, which after the offer did not need to take place.

Next steps

We’d like to thank all members who participated in the ballot. We will now notify OCS of the ballot result and seek arrangements for the back pay due to be paid as soon as possible.

Make the union stronger in OCS – get involved

We have won significant improvements for you and your colleagues and have sent a strong message to OCS that we will stand and fight for better pay, terms and conditions. Speak to colleagues who aren’t PCS members and encourage them to join online. Together we are stronger.
