Welfare Week 29 April- 5 May:

PCS is spearheading a united campaign against welfare cuts alongside other trade unions and charities. 

PCS will have a week of activities around welfare. It will start with a protest in Ashton-under-Lyne Town Hall (near the Jobcentre Pathfinder) from 12.30pm on 29 April. This Pathfinder is the first trial of Universal Credit (UC). 
Throughout the campaign week our members will be able hand out a variety of leaflets to colleagues and the public highlighting the problems of UC and busting myths about welfare.
Our core campaign objectives:
