Pledge to support 12 May TUC march

18 Apr 2018

Support our call for a fully-funded, above inflation pay rise for all civil servants which will be heard across the union movement in London on 12 May when PCS joins a large-scale TUC march.  

We want PCS members and supporters from across the UK to pledge to support the march by completing our quick online registration form.

More than 250 people have so far pledged their support since the form went live on Friday but we want lots more people to join in to send a powerful message to the government that civil servants need a decent pay rise after more than 7 years of pay restraint.

Use PCS pay calculator

You should use our pay calculator to find out how much you’ve lost because of the pat freeze/cap and put pressure on the government to give us all the pay rise we deserve by sharing your result with Cabinet Office minister David Lidington.

We also want members to get involved in our latest payday activities on 30 April. 30 April is our Big Pay Petition Day when members will sign A4 petitions, which should then be pasted to a single large placard and used in photo opportunities with the maximum number of members taking part. You can download and print a petition and ask your colleagues to sign it or ask your workplace rep for a copy to sign. Once everyone has signed your workplace petition take a group photo outside your workplace and email it to 


The 12 May event is the TUC’s ‘new deal for working people’ march and rally. It’s a family-friendly event so save the date, make a day of it, bring your family, friends and colleagues and show the government your determination to achieve a pay rise that will make a difference to your life, your family and your community. Transport is being organised by our regional centres across the UK, so contact your local office to find out more.

The march will assemble at Victoria Embankment between Hungerford Bridge and Blackfriars Bridge from 11am.

It will move off at noon and march to Hyde Park. 

The rally will take place in Hyde Park, finishing at 4pm


The TUC wants to make sure the event is accessible to everyone. There are special arrangements for people who:

  • wish to join the march at the main assembly point
  • wish to join the last part of the march for a shorter route to the rally
  • wish to go straight to the rally.
