This site has been set up in response to the decision of the PCS National Executive Committee to suspend elections in 2015.
The decision was justified on the grounds of cost saving and attacks on the union by the Tory-led government. But many union members believe that these arguments don’t hold water. The government is attacking us, but by surrendering any aspect of our democracy the leadership are on a slippery slope. The right to choose who runs the union every year is a red line which mustn’t be crossed.
The fight is now on to resist this attack on democrac and reverse the NEC decision. There will be more updates in due course so stay tuned!
