Sheffield jobcentre campaign continues with fifth week of strike action

From PCS
15 Sep 2017

Our 50 members at Eastern Avenue continue their campaign to stop the closure of the jobcentre with another week of strike action beginning on Monday 18 September.

The latest action follows week-long strikes in June and July and a two week strike in August.

The closure of the office, which serves one of the most deprived areas of Sheffield, would lead to the removal of a vital public service, and lead to claimants having to travel much further to access the help and assistance that our members provide. The closure would cause particular hardship to the many sick, disabled or people with caring responsibilities who use Eastern Avenue.

How you can help

  • Support the picket lines at 19 Eastern Avenue, Sheffield S2 2FZ
  • Send messages of support to leeds@pcs.org.uk
  • Make a donation to our fighting fund online or by cheque to PCS DWP Group, 3rdFloor, Town Centre House, Merrion Centre, Leeds LS2 8LY.
