They Can't Bury Our Voices

AS AN active PCS representative within the Land Registry I'm personally disgusted with the way this Labour government has treated my colleagues across the civil service.

Emily Kelly, Lancashire Land Registry PCS Rep.

Their plan to slash civil service jobs and their use of the media to paint us as faceless bureaucrats is both a disservice to our diverse, hard-working, over-stretched members and a pathetic attempt to sway an electorate .

5 November will be a successful day of protest, starting as early as 12am for some of our members in the Registry's Information Systems department in Plymouth. It will send a strong message to this Labour government that we will not be the victims of party politics.

The media may well bury the stories around the country on the day of the strike, but they will not bury the voices of those of us who will continue to campaign against the cuts to pay, pensions and sickness benefit.
