On 19 April ballot papers for the PCS executive committee elections will be posted out. Many members can be expected to vote soon after their ballot papers arrive.

It is vital that local reps act quickly to persuade members to vote for the Democracy Alliance slate.

Members of the 90 branches that nominated the Democracy Alliance should be approached to vote for the Democracy Alliance slate

Even if a branch did not nominate the Democracy Alliance slate branch committees can still recommend this slate to members

Leaflets explaining the Democracy Alliance record and programme are available. These should be used in offices where possible or by leafleting outside offices

Left Unity activists have been sent a ballot pack containing guidelines on how to maximise the vote for Democracy Alliance candidates.

That pack also contains materials to use to help make recommendations. More information can be found at leftunity.org.uk.

The PCS left leadership is one of the most consistent and effective critics of the Tories' austerity programme. We have launched the pay protest and campaign against the pay cap.

Linked with this are efforts to persuade the Trade Union Congress and other public sector unions to take joint coordinated action on pay to scrap the cap.

Continued support for these policies rely on the re-election of the Democracy Alliance leadership.

Chris Baugh, PCS assistant general secretary (personal capacity), says: "I urge PCS members to support Democracy Alliance candidates in the 2018 president, vice-presidents and executive committee election.

"The Democracy Alliance leadership has delivered for members in the workplace and at group and national level.

"A strong and democratically accountable union is required to meet the challenges we face - this is best achieved by voting the Democracy Alliance slate."
