OVER 80,000 members of the PCS civil servants' union are to be balloted over a new pay deal in the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) in September. DWP bosses have offered workers on the lowest grades a 4 percent pay rise. But this will still leave those on the lowest grade on a minimum of under £10,000 a year.

Unfortunately the left-controlled PCS group executive is recommending the deal. This is despite a recent regional union reps' meeting where a large majority of people spoke out against the deal. PCS activists should vote to reject the deal.

DWP MANAGEMENT is disciplining Chris Ford, a key PCS activist in the recent strike for safety.

  • Please send messages of support to Chris at PCS Branch Secretary, DWP, Government Buildings, Broomyard Avenue, Acton, London W3 7HY.
