PCS will be lobbying this weekend's Green Party conference in support of an alternative to the coalition government's policies of cuts and austerity.The union will have a stall at the four-day event and PCS speakers will address two fringe meetings.
Caroline Lucas, the Green’s first MP and vice-chair of the PCS parliamentary group said: “We are delighted to have PCS at our conference. I look forward to continuing to work closely with the union as we battle for a fairer world.”
The conference is at Sheffield Hallam University, Howard Street, S1 1WB.
On Friday 9 September at 3pm PCS will jointly host a meeting called ‘Just pay’ – as part of the union’s campaign for a living wage.
Speakers will include Green Party Euro MP Jean Lambert and PCS assistant general secretary Chris Baugh.
On Saturday 10 September at 6pm PCS vice president John McInally will speak at a meeting called ‘Inequality – enough’.
Later this month and into October PCS will also be lobbying the Liberal Democrat, Labour and Conservative conferences.
