Lewisham PCS members join national protest, prepare to ballot for action and applaud NHS workersOn Friday 30/11/12 over 40 PCS members held a 15 minute protest outside the jobcentre as part of the union's "Don't Rip up Our Rights" campaign. This addresses Government attacks on pay and conditions across the civil service.
They also welcomed the forthcoming strike ballot across the Department to oppose compulsory redundancies of 43 staff. We need more staff, not less Strike action will start in January 2013.
PCS members applauded workers from Lewisham Hospital A&E pledging support for the campaign to Save Lewisham Hospital and "adopting a ward" to help in the coming weeks.
