The Tories want to move Business, Innovation and Skills, the key driver of the Northern Powerhouse, to London – what a joke.

PCS members at National Museum Wales are still fighting to defend our weekends.  They are currently balloting on the next step in the campaign.

Support fight back in DWP

They’ve got the money so drop the strings

I think this is really important for everyone. We managed to see off attacks at National Gallery on out of hours and weekend working but obviously has significance for all of us not just Junior Doctors – PCS members are still in dispute at National Museums Wales and Scotland over weekend working and even the English National Opera Chorus have just voted 100% for industrial action!

I also agree it is brilliant that DWP have an offer that sets a precedent by breaking the 1% pay limit and it is really important that this doesn’t come with unacceptable strings attached.
