The huge anger at the corruption in parliament is reinforcing the need for a political alternative that working people can vote for. The PCS civil service workers’ union conference in Brighton this week saw debates over this issue.

Mark Serwotka, the PCS general secretary, said that he wanted to launch a process of consultation with members over whether the union should support trade union candidates in future elections.

This will involve a year of discussion in the union followed by a motion at next year’s conference.

Many delegates recognise the need for trade union-backed candidates at forthcoming elections.
