PCS launches fighting fund

The PCS fighting fund, supporting members taking targeted industrial action, has now been launched.

We are asking all members to make a voluntary donation of £2 a month to support striking members whose action could exert significant pressure on the government to enter into national negotiations over the key issues in our dispute:

  • Pay
  • Pensions
  • Jobs
  • Terms and conditions
  • Privatisation

Making this small donation could help make major gains for all members on pay, pensions, jobs and terms and conditions.

You can donate by:

  • Writing a cheque for £24 made payable to PCS fighting fund levy and sending it to PCS Finance Department, Freepost, BFH1003, 160 Falcon Road, London, SW11 2BR

Our strategy

We are seeking to build coordinated action with other unions over issues that affect the whole public sector, such as the pay cap and pension changes. On 10 July around 1.5 million public sector workers participated in joint strike action, and we will continue to pursue mass co-ordinated action.

Encourage your colleagues to back the fighting fund and, if they haven’t already, to join the union.

Sustained targeted industrial action has proved a successful tool in trade union disputes throughout history, but has to be funded to ensure the members involved are not left in poverty.

In our consultation last year, dozens of branches said they were willing to take such action. Our national disputes committee is now working with branches and reps to look at how this could work in practice.

We are stronger together.
