PCS reps and activists will be gathering in Brighton on 23 May at this year's annual delegates conference, which takes place in the middle of the general election campaign.
The PCS Democracy Alliance (Left Unity and PCS Democrats) has secured an increased majority in the 2017 PCS elections. When the ballot closed on 11 May 34 Democracy Alliance candidates had been elected.
A number of Socialist Party members were elected to the executive committee this year - Janice Godrich for the fifteenth time as president and Fran Heathcote, newly elected as vice president. Mark Baker, Marion Lloyd, John McInally, Katrine Williams were also elected. Unfortunately Chris Morrison lost out by a handful of votes.
Left Unity is the rank-and-file organisation within PCS which puts forward socialist ideas and stands for an independent and democratic union with a fighting leadership. This leadership is faced with a huge challenge over the next 12 months.
But it remains confident about meeting these challenges and continuing to defend jobs, services and conditions, fighting in the best interests of our members and wherever possible linking up with other unions.
Left Unity believes the general election is an opportunity to kick out the Tories. Left Unity would welcome the election of a Corbyn-led government on an anti-austerity programme. No doubt these themes will be discussed at conference.
