PCS annual conference 2017: building our union

19 May 2017

Our group and national conferences take place in Brighton from Monday (22 May) to Thursday next week, when delegates meet to agree our union's priorities for the next 12 months.

Delegates will set the priorities for the union for the coming year on pay, jobs and working conditions, with group conferences taking place on Monday and Tuesday and our national annual delegate conference running from Tuesday afternoon until Thursday lunchtime.

There will be regular updates from conference throughout the week on the conference news web page, our Facebook page and our Twitter feed.

Motions to this year's conference focus on:

  • the need to lift the 1% public sector pay cap
  • jobs and office closures
  • cuts at the Equality and Human Rights Commission
  • Brexit
  • the general election on 8 June
  • performance management, and;
  • welfare.

Our annual delegate conference will hear from shadow chancellor John McDonnell, who addresses delegates on Tuesday afternoon, and chair of our parliamentary group Chris Stephens, who is due to deliver the report of the PCS Parliamentary Group on Wednesday morning.

Building our union

Delegates will also debate our national organising strategy (opens as PDF) on Wednesday afternoon, which outlines the key objectives as we continue to strive to build our union in 2017. The strategy stresses that every member has a part to play in getting the bread and butter union building work right so we have the foundations to challenge the employer on the things that matter to our members.

There are a number of fringe meetings  throughout the week, including one on Wednesday about the PCS Fighting Fund.
