PCS Land Registry delegates commit to action
Delegates representing PCS members from all Land Registry (LR) offices met in Brighton 20-21 May.
The key session of the conference debated LR's 'Business Strategy' and management's preferred GovCo business model, which together threaten 1,000 jobs and would take the organisation one step closer to privatisation.
Delegates unanimously endorsed resolutions that commit the Group Executive to mounting a strong tactical campaign.
Delegates also agreed that if any member is threatened with compulsory redundancy or if the Minister for Land Registry (Michael Fallon) approves a move away from LR's public sector status then members should be balloted positively for industrial action.
With strong leadership, a broad member based campaign and the threat and delivery of industrial action, privatisation and compulsory redundancies in LR can also be resisted.
