PCS members can nominate candidates for the national executive committee (NEC) at their branch annual general meeting. These meetings will take place during February and early March.

The Socialist Party supports the Democracy Alliance, which is standing a full slate in this election.

The alliance, which is comprised of PCS Left Unity and PCS Democrats, has won the NEC elections for the last 14 years.

During this time PCS has been seen as a union which stands up for its members, providing a democratically accountable and fighting leadership.

It has fought against austerity and the pay cap and put forward an alternative tax justice and welfare programme.

The Democracy Alliance slate (right) includes eight Socialist Party candidates.

Coronavirus crisis - Finance appeal

The coronavirus crisis has laid bare the class character of society in numerous ways. It is making clear to many that it is the working class that keeps society running, not the CEOs of major corporations.

The results of austerity have been graphically demonstrated as public services strain to cope with the crisis.

The government has now ripped up its 'austerity' mantra and turned to policies that not long ago were denounced as socialist. But after the corona crisis, it will try to make the working class pay for it, by trying to claw back what has been given.

  • The Socialist Party's material is more vital than ever, so we can continue to report from workers who are fighting for better health and safety measures, against layoffs, for adequate staffing levels, etc.
  • Our 'fighting coronavirus workers' charter', outlines a programme to combat the virus and protect workers' living conditions.
  • When the health crisis subsides, we must be ready for the stormy events ahead and the need to arm workers' movements with a socialist programme - one which puts the health and needs of humanity before the profits of a few.
Inevitably, during the crisis we have not been able to sell the Socialist and raise funds in the ways we normally would.
We therefore urgently appeal to all our viewers to donate to our special coronavirus appeal.
