PSC challenges Government

Message from PSC:PSC logo image

Dear Friend,

We’ve won the right to challenge the Government in the Supreme Court over ethical divestment of local pension schemes.

If we win, this will be a huge victory not just for the global BDS movement, but for all those who believe in freedom of expression, democracy and justice.

But it will cost us £60k to get there. That’s why I’m writing to you today to launch our 2019 Fighting Fund appeal – please read on and give whatever you can.

Chip in to the 2019 Fighting Fund now!

Fair pay for civil servants

Message from the TUC:

TUC header. The words "going to work" in black letters on a light grey rectangular background. Underneath that are the words "FROM THE TUC" in dark grey capital letters on a light grey background.

All over the country, workers’ pay is struggling to keep up with the cost of living. While a small percentage get richer and richer, everyone else is left behind.

This isn’t inevitable. It’s the result of choices made by politicians – and they have the power to change it.

Today, it’s our hard-working civil servants who are demanding fair pay. Please read and sign and share this important petition.
