Jobs are being cut, conditions are being squeezed and PCS members are being asked to do more and more for less and less. 

We’ve had enough. 

We are proud public servants. Everyone has seen how shabbily the private sector performs. 

We won’t stand by and watch the public we try to serve ripped off by yet more money grabbing private sector cowboys. 

In Leeds, like many places, we’re organising a big protest on the day. We are getting tremendous support from other groups of workers—post office staff, council workers, NHS workers, and students and bedroom tax campaigners too. 

We are really starting to Unite the Resistance. Everyone knows we’re getting hammered and we can’t go on like this. 

It is starting to feel like people are ready to stand up against the Tories and their vicious austerity cuts. We need to!
