PCS union elections: Nominate candidates fighting austerity and for union democracy

Marion Lloyd, Broad Left Network candidate for PCS President and national executive committee member (personal capacity)

When I stood to be general secretary nearly 10,000 PCS union members voted for my campaign, to rebuild a fighting democratic union.

My vote showed that members are looking for a change in leadership that will build a national campaign to resist the Tory austerity programme.

I believe members are looking for a new union leadership and a fresh approach. I believe this is provided by the PCS Broad Left Network (BLN).

The newly formed BLN is made up of socialists from across the PCS, a union of civil servants and private sector workers on government contracts. The BLN's purpose is to put forward candidates in the upcoming PCS elections and to fight for its ideas and programme on a daily basis at every level of the union.

The BLN is supporting a diverse group of candidates in the election, all of whom are committed to fighting against austerity and for union democracy.

The Broad Left Network programme includes:

I am supported by the BLN to stand to be the union's president. I've been active in the union since joining the civil service at 16.

Currently I am president of the PCS group of the government's Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy and for many years have been a member of the PCS national executive committee.

I have led a number of campaigns and disputes with successful outcomes and I am an experienced negotiator.

The other BLN-supported candidates in these elections have similar records to my own. All of them socialists and all respected activists in the union.

We stand for action - not words. We are seeking branch nominations for BLN-supported candidates.

Join the BLN, support our campaign to rebuild PCS and the left in the union.

Finance appeal

The coronavirus crisis has laid bare the class character of society in numerous ways. It is making clear to many that it is the working class that keeps society running, not the CEOs of major corporations.

The results of austerity have been graphically demonstrated as public services strain to cope with the crisis.

The government has now ripped up its 'austerity' mantra and turned to policies that not long ago were denounced as socialist. But after the corona crisis, it will try to make the working class pay for it, by trying to claw back what has been given.

Inevitably, during the crisis we have not been able to sell the Socialist and raise funds in the ways we normally would.

We therefore urgently appeal to all our viewers to click here to donate to our Fighting Fund.
