No progress in ACAS talks
JOIN the walkout WEDNESDAY 26th MARCH at 12.30pm

Management at Ofqual, along with PCS, met ACAS this Wednesday to try and settle the dispute over the sacking of the PCS rep Sofia’s dismissal. Unfortunately, no progress was made.
Reps are not only disappointed, but angry over this outcome, and another half day walkout has been called for this Wednesday.

Background to the dispute
Management at Ofqual, the examinations qualifications regulator have sacked PCS branch chair Sofia Azam. PCS believe that this is a clear case of trade union victimisation and members in her branch have already staged a half day walk out last month.

We are calling on all trade unionists and supporters to Join us at 12.30 outside Ofqual, Spring Place, Herald Avenue, Coventry, CV5 6UB on Wednesday 26th March at 12.30 followed by a short rally at the Standard Triumph.
