Campaign for PCS Democracy

Two branches within our union have initiated a campaign and are asking for support for via this site: http://pcsdemocracy.blogspot.co.uk.

Their statement makes clear that, ‘The sole purpose of this campaign is for NEC and GEC elections to be held at the usual time or if that does not happen then they must be held as soon as possible and for the union’s constitution, as presently drafted, regarding elections to be followed’. This campaign is not factional.’

IL supporters are moving support for this in branches alongside others in the union who believe in democracy.

STATEMENT
The decision by the emergency NEC in late December 2014 to suspend NEC and group elections was wrong.
We will work together in a campaign to seek to get that decision overturned and for NEC and group elections to be held at the usual time. If that does not happen then they must be held as soon as possible.
We will agree motions or a motion for the ADC that will achieve elections as soon as possible after the conference.
We will seek to get as many branches as possible to agree this statement.
We will use social media (be it a blog, Facebook page etc.) to gather support for our campaign in the union and in the wider labour movement
We accept and respect that each branch will have differing views on who to support in elections. The sole purpose of this campaign is for NEC and GEC elections to be held at the usual time or if that does not happen then they must be held as soon as possible.
