All out on Wednesday! Join your workplace picket line! 28/11/2011

Posted by pcsdwpsheffield in Uncategorized.

All members of the branch should be aware by now that this Wednesday we will again be taking strike action along with three million other public sector workers. The branch fully supports this action and calls on all members to respect the democratic mandate and not to cross the picket line at our offices or any other workplace on strike this Wednesday.

The latest national news on the action can be found at http://www.pcs.org.uk/, and this article explains the action.

We are also urging more members than ever before – not just the usual faces – to turn out for picket lines and the various events that will be happening in Sheffield on Wednesday. Picket lines will be outside all of our buildings from around 7am, but for specific details please contact your local rep. Details of your local rep can be found on our reps page.

The branch wants members to be able to come to the picket and feel safe whilst still making a stand and withdrawing their labour. Members often bring their families to the picket line and the other pickets will help to entertain them.


There are a number of events happening in Sheffield throughout the day for members of the 29 unions on strike this week.

After the picket lines, there will be a PCS Strikers mass breakfast/coffee meet up in the Bankers Draft at about 10am, friends and family members welcome.

11.45 – PCS members from branches across Sheffield will meet in Hartshead Square and march up to the TUC Rally.

12.00 – Regional TUC Rally in Barkers Pool

1.oo – March from Barkers Pool around Sheffield

2pm – local speakers rally

3..30pm – Branch sponsored meeting in conjunction with Sheffield Hallam UCU Branch, ‘Where Next After November 30th: A Discussion Meeting’. Facebook event here.
