PCS is one of the more active, campaigning trade unions, and Bootle Taxes are proud to be one of the more active, campaigning branches in PCS.

The term campaigning covers a broad range of activity. From distributing literature to members in order to build for industrial action to coordinating pickets and industrial action, it takes a lot of time and hard work. That’s where our branch’s hard working reps and activists come in.

Ongoing campaigns

PCS has been campaigning against austerity since it came into force, though our current focus is pay.

Find out more about the national campaign here.

In HMRC, we are in dispute with the employer over jobs and staffing. The department’s plans to reduce the number of offices from 170 to 13 regional centres and 4 specialist sites; and to slash thousands of jobs, will lead to chaos in the department.

Campaigns we support

As a trade union, we were founded on the principles of solidarity and the need to fight for a fairer society.

We have always sought to join together with those who share our aims, and we are proud to support a wide range of campaigns and campaigning organisations.

More details about campaigns the union supports nationally can be found on the PCS site.
