Last week of Mark Serwotka campaign

Issue No. 2181

Supporters of the campaign to re-elect Mark Serwotka as general secretary of the PCS civil service workers’ union are pulling out all the stops as the election enters its last week.

Paul McGoay of the campaign said, “Lots of leafleting has been done across the country, and the level of support we have got from members has been good.

“Some activists leafleted workplaces in the central London branch that the right wing candidate Rob Bryson is in and found a lot of support for Mark Serwotka.

“It is key that there is a big vote for Mark in this election, for its significance for the wider trade union movement, particularly for those in the public sector who face serious cuts next year.

“A strong vote will send a loud message that people want to fight against the attacks that we face, particularly with the threats being made to the civil service compensation scheme.”

The election closes next Thursday 17 December, but people can still get involved.
