Debating the pay fight

Issue No. 2100

Delegates to the PCS civil service workers’ union conference in two weeks’ time will discuss the next stage in the union’s fight for decent pay.

More than 100,000 members of the union in different departments struck on 24 April alongside other groups of workers.

The conference will discuss launching a national strike ballot of the union’s over 250,000 members who are all facing the government’s pay limit.

There is deep anger over the attacks.

Many activists will be arguing in favour of the national ballot and for the union to take part in more days of coordinated action after the huge success of 24 April.

They will also be arguing for the union to use every possible opportunity to increase the pressure on management and the government.
