PCS elections - vote Democracy Alliance

There is just over a week to go before the PCS national executive committee ballot closes on 11 May (and group elections on 16 May). This deadline takes no account of postal delivery so activists have just a couple of days to maximise the Democracy Alliance vote.
- Branches who nominated should remind members to vote and to vote for the branch-agreed Democracy Alliance slate
- Branches which have branch executive committee recommendations for the Democracy Alliance slate should also issue a reminder to vote and recommend the slate
- Wherever possible, branch executive committee members and local reps should do a sweep of the offices to remind members to vote and recommend the Democracy Alliance slate
With the announcement of a general election, it is vital we secure a victory for the Democracy Alliance.
If Jeremy Corbyn wins we need a leadership which will be uncompromising in demanding Labour carries out its anti-austerity programme and public sector pledges. If Theresa May wins we will need a union leadership committed to fighting the Tories' austerity programme and defending our members.
