Letter of support and solidarity received from comrades in PCS Forestry Commission 20/03/2017

Posted by pcsdwpsheffield in Uncategorized.


On behalf of PCS FC Y&H Branch, I would like to express support and sympathy from Forestry Commission colleagues.

Your leaflet will be circulated among our members and pinned to our TU notice boards in Foss House (York), FC Yorkshire District Office (Pickering), and three other FC outstations.  In addition, I have sent it to someone I know who works for NYCC in County Hall (North Allerton) with the request that it be circulated among union members here too.  The main TU at this worksite is Unison but I believe your leaflet has three clear messages relevant to all TUs:

  • A worksite closure in a public-facing and critically important service is bad news for everyone
  • Two TUs (in this case PCS and Unite Community) are working together very effectively
  • Shop-floor DWP workers are demonstrating great sensitivity towards the plight of unemployed and disadvantaged members of our society: an important challenge to the usual negative media depiction of DWP.
