The LR Group PCS web site is designed to provide members with information about campaigns, contacts and services. We will try to keep up to date by adding new bulletins and copies of Progress magazine, as and when they are published.
Land Registry is heading for further challenges in the coming months. We are still negotiating on the fall out of the ATP announcements. Ongoing issues include; proposed outsourcing, RA/RO deployment, merger of Plymouth sites, Head Office and, of course, supporting members in closing offices. We are also in the process of establishing what will emerge from the management restructuring at local offices. Our role is clearly to achieve the very difficult balance of job retention and meeting individual members' aspirations. All of this has to be done under the shadow of uncertainty of the civil service compensation scheme (CSCS).
With these issues, the spectre of further proposed public sector job cuts and the Government's pay freeze, it has never been more important to be part of a united, campaigning Trade Union. I would urge all members to; keep up to date with the LR PCS and national web sites, read all of our material, attend meetings and take part in forthcoming ballots.
All the best,
PCS LR Group President
