Redundancy rights (https://www.pcs.org.uk/campaigns/redundancy-rights)
In an era of austerity and swingeing cuts, making sure members who lose their jobs at least get a decent pay-off is more vital than ever.
That's why PCS has been fighting tooth and nail to protect your terms and conditions – and has so far fended off Tory attempts to water them down.
In 2016, the government tried to change the Civil Service Compensation Scheme (CSCS), slashing redundancy pay by 33%.
To date, PCS campaigning has prevented this from happening.
We first halted the plans in 2017 after bringing a judicial review on the government's lack of consultation.
The plans are now on hold until December 2021 – but the Tories are determined to press ahead.
Now, we are demanding:
- No cuts or further threats to redundancy rights
- The continuation of protection under the existing 2010 terms
- An end to age discrimination tapering for those over 57
- A guarantee of no compulsory redundancies.
The more people who take part in our campaign, the more effective it will be.
