PCS is the largest trade union in the civil service, representing workers in the public sector as well as commercial and private sector workers who work on government contracts.
By joining PCS you will be adding your voice to the tens of thousands of other members across the country who want to stand up for better working conditions: whether that’s for improved pay and contracts, protecting against redundancy and office closure as well as having a say on how your workplace is organised and run.
PCS members can also receive free advice and representation from our fully trained workplace reps on a range of issues that affect you directly, backed up by our dedicated legal team. Reps will provide you with support through grievance and disciplinary hearings, holiday and sick leave requests and attendance or performance management disputes. When you join PCS you will never have to stand alone in your work.
As well as protection in the workplace we have a range of membership benefits including reduced cost insurance deals, a free will service and access to the PCS Credit Union among many others. Being the largest union in the sector means we can negotiate the best deals for our members.
Most importantly, being a member of PCS means you can take part in the union’s campaigns and debates. PCS is a democratic union, run by members for the benefit of members. You will be invited to vote on union policy, decide on the issues that matter most to you and your colleagues, and have your voice heard at every level of your union.
