Sign up to the PCS ‘Fighting Fund’ to help us take funded action! 30/07/2014

Posted by pcsdwpsheffield in Uncategorized.

Civil Servants taking part in a strike in 2004PCS DWP Sheffield Branch has long advocated a fund to pay for targeted industrial action/strike pay. This was finally passed at national conference this year and we want members to take part by donating regularly to the PCS Fighting Fund, as much as they can afford.

From PCS.org.uk:

PCS launches a fighting fund

 PCS is launching a fighting fund to support members taking targeted industrial action, as agreed by annual delegate conference.

 The fund will support members taking sustained strike action in workplaces in which such action could be capable of exerting significant pressure on the government to enter into national negotiations over the key issues in our dispute: pay, pensions, jobs, terms and conditions, and privatisation.

 Sustained targeted industrial action has proved a successful tool in trade union disputes throughout history, but has to be funded to ensure the members involved are not left in poverty.

 For more information on the fighting fund, how to make a voluntary donation and the strategy, visit the PCS website.http://www.pcs.org.uk/en/news_and_events/pcs_comment/index.cfm/pcs-fighting-fund-launches
