PCS leadership elections
The elections for the leadership of the Public and Commercial Services union (PCS) will start soon, with nominations closing on 6 March.
Socialist Party members in PCS are part of Left Unity, which is standing candidates with the PCS Democrats - as the Democracy Alliance.
Socialist Party members who are standing include Chris Baugh for Assistant General Secretary, Janice Godrich for President and John McInally for Vice-President.
The union's Democracy Alliance-led leadership has a proven track record of opposing the Con-Dems' austerity attacks by fighting for jobs, services and working conditions.
PCS branches are being asked to nominate Democracy Alliance candidates - a full list is available on leftunity.org.uk
