Civil service workers in the PCS union are set to protest in workplaces around Britain on Thursday of this week. This will take the form of lunchtime rallies and tours of different workplaces.

Workers will be visiting numerous PCS workplaces in Birmingham, starting at Ravenhurst DWP at 12 noon.

PCS members from across London will rally from 12.30 outside the government building at 100 Parliament Street in Westminster. Speakers include PCS assistant general secretary Chris Baugh.

This is part of the out of work hours protest activity that the union executive announced would happen in the place of strikes.

Some 800 PCS branches are to be consulted about what the next stage of the campaign against cuts to jobs, pay and working conditions will look like.

It is important for all PCS members to make the most of this week’s protest activity—in order to keep up the pressure for the union to call co-ordinated strikes.
