Event description
Summit on militant, rank and file organising within the PCS union. Including debate, discussion and a practical training workshop.

About this Event

The PCS Rank & File Network is an organising forum within the PCS union.

We are hosting this summit in support of our aim to link up and support lay union members who want to build the capacity of the rank and file membership to take collective action: with the support of the union leadership where possible, and without it where necessary. The full day event includes debate, discussion and a practical training session on direct action in the workplace.

The schedule below will be updated as more details are confirmed.
