PCS national executive committee elections will soon get under way. Branch annual general meetings (AGMs) will be asked to nominate a slate agreed between PCS Left Unity and PCS Democrats - working together as the Democracy Alliance.

The current PCS leadership is widely regarded as one of the most effective campaigning leaderships in the trade union movement. Our consistent political opposition to the Tories' austerity agenda has been backed up with action to defend members' jobs and conditions. In this we have sought maximum unity with other unions individually and through the TUC.

AGMs will take place between late January and March 2017. We are calling for continued support from AGMs by nominating the Democratic Alliance slate (see below).
