Lobby of Parliament-Opposing National Office Closures 06/03/2017

Posted by pcsdwpsheffield in Uncategorized.

The group executive committee has agreed to hold a national DWP Lobby of Parliament as part of our campaign to oppose the office and job centre closures in DWP.

PCS branches in the DWP have 50,000 members spread over every constituency in the country. Many members of parliament have already committed to working with PCS to oppose office closures. A successful lobby will enable us to build on this and maximise pressure on other MPs to join and support our campaign.

The lobby will be held on Tuesday 28 March 2017 13.00 to 16.30

The lobby will start with a meeting for PCS reps and members from 1.00pm till 2.00pm in Committee Room 16 in the House of Commons.

Don’t worry if you have never attended a lobby of Parliament before. PCS will issue step-by step guidance to help you and there will be PCS reps present on the day to give you advice and guidance on what to do.

After the briefing meeting reps and members will lobby MPs in the House of Commons central lobby from 2pm till 4pm.

There will also be a drop-in room in Committee Room 16 in the House of Commons where MPs who are not being lobbied can come along and find out about our campaign.
