As a democratic union, PCS’s policies and priorities are decided at our annual conference.  

At the national executive committee meeting in January, the NEC agreed that the 2021 national and group conferences will all take place online.

The national conference will take place over two days on Sunday 13 and Monday 14 June. Group conferences will be held during the week beginning 24 May and week beginning 7 June.

Due to the pandemic, this year’s conference will take a different format and will be broken into four sections:

  • Covid-19 related matters, including health and safety;
  • national campaign and bargaining related matters;
  • strategic options for the future of the union, including equality and organising
  • an open session for branch motions on other subjects.
