Sheffield Branch Delegation attend lobby of Parliament in support of the threatened Eastern Avenue Jobcentre 31/03/2017

Posted by pcsdwpsheffield in Uncategorized.

A five strong delegation from Sheffield attended the recent PCS lobby of Parliament to speak to the MPs already on board with the campaign to Save Eastern Avenue and to press their cause with MPs unaware of the plight of Eastern Avenue and its surrounding community.

The lobby was well attended from across the UK with around 100 lobbyists speaking to over 40 MPs.  The MPS that the Sheffield delegation spoke to were fully supportive of the campaign and were asked to support the Early Day Motion to oppose Jobcentre closures (To ask your MP to sign click here.)

A number of speakers including MPs, the PCS Assistant Secretary and representatives of the Disabled People Against the Cuts spoke passionately about the impact and human cost the of closures planned by the DWP across the DWP estate.   Time and again they highlighted the lack of impact analysis and questioned the rationale for the closures.
