Almost 200 people gathered in Hastings last Saturday to protest at the sacking of a fifth PCS union rep at the Child Maintenance and Enforcement Commission.

Sam Buckley, the latest victim of bullying management, was sacked for failing to reach impossible targets that no one else in the building was expected to achieve.

PCS members from different government departments across Britain joined the protest, as did many other trade unionists, campaigners and local Labour Party members.
