PCS gave evidence today to a House of Commons Bill Committee about the problems caused by cuts to HMRC staffing levels.
The momentum of the PCS pay campaign is building as we head into 2018 as we argue that the Treasury pay remit, which sets the parameters for settling pay across the civil service, must formally lift the 1% public sector pay cap for civil servants and enable departments to pay above inflation increases.
The full extent of our victory in the High Court over the government’s cuts to civil service redundancy pay (civil service compensation scheme) is now clear; the Court has quashed the cuts to the scheme, refused the government a right to appeal and made a full costs award against the government.
Members have agreed to welcome the election of candidates whose policies support PCS
