Become an activist (https://www.pcs.org.uk/get-involved/become-activist)
Speak to one of your local reps about becoming a union rep or advocate.
We won’t throw you in the deep end. There is a comprehensive programme of training available. All new reps should take the 6-day PCS Workplace Reps course. And there are also specific courses for Health and Safety Reps, Learning Reps, and shorter courses on a wide range of equality, organising and campaigning subjects.
Find out what we do
You can get involved in PCS without being a rep. If you want to find out more about what PCS do, sign up for a Welcome to PCS course in your region. It's a 1-day course that gives a bit of a background for those new to trade unions.
If you want to get more involved but don’t want to be a rep, why not become a PCS Union Advocate? All PCS regions have regular 1-hour advocate introductory sessions, telling you what's involved, giving you tips and ideas on how you can help your branch communicate better with members, assist on campaigns, and play a part in building a stronger union in your workplace.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org (mailto:email@example.com) if you are interested in becoming more active in your union.
