Civil Servants Union PCS Demands Taxpayer Keeps Subsidising Their Activities…

Guido helpfully points out that PCS (The Public and Commercial Services Union) is very unhappy with Local Government Minister Eric Pickles who wants to stop “check off” where union subs are deducted from salary – thus funding the union directly from taxpayers and saving unions the costs of collecting it themselves

What is PCS?

The Public and Commercial Services Union (PCS) is one of the largest trade unions in the UK, with around 270,000 members.

We are organised throughout the civil service and government agencies, making us the UK’s largest civil service trade union.

Naturally PCS links the Eric Pickles move with their general campaign against “cuts”. No doubt there will be the usual choreographed banner waving photo op demonstrating high levels of PCS “anger” – but how representative of the PCS membership is the leadership?  Not much if the turnout at the annual PCS election is any indication……less than 10% bothered to vote…
