Fighting for best possible redundancy terms
We are determined to defend your terms and conditions and get a better civil service redundancy scheme than the government imposed in 2016, is the message from PCS following the third round of talks on the Civil Service Compensation Scheme.
“We all deserve a pay rise,” was the message from PCS members across the UK who took part in vibrant, well-supported payday protests to call on the government to scrap the 1% public sector pay cap and deliver fully-funded rises for all.
On 31 July, HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) imposed the cap on employees for another 12 months.
This means that by 31 August, 3 of the largest departments in Whitehall will have delivered yet another real-terms cut in pay to their staff. Seven years of pay restraint, including the ongoing cap, have been highly damaging for many public sector workers.
Unlawful tribunal fees will be scrapped
The government acted unlawfully when it introduced fees for employment tribunals, the Supreme Court has ruled.
