Support PCS to defend public servants

Good luck to PCS members striking on 8 and 9 March in opposition to the attacks upon their redundancy entitlements.

There is no doubt that the Government wants to make it cheaper to sack civil servants in anticipation of mass redundancies as - whoever wins the election - politicians cave in to the demands of the bankers who caused the crisis in the first place and hack back services to close the deficit.

151 MPs backed the demand of Katy Clark that the Government think again about this attack upon the rights of its employees - but to no avail.

Following the report of our General Secretary of proposals for joint working with PCS this strike is the first opportunity for UNISON members and officials to support our brothers and sisters in PCS by joining them on their picket lines.
