The public sector union PCS has announced that it will abolish half of its senior managment positions.
At the Public and Commercial Services Union’s annual conference in Brighton, the general secretary Mark Serwotka said he would cut the number of senior national officials from 22 to 11 to ensure the union was not too “top-heavy”.
The news comes just days after the Unite union announced it would cut jobs in an attempt to cut departmental budgets by 20%.
Serwotka told delegates: “We are conducting a review of senior management to give more back to staff and to ensure we best represent the make-up of our membership.”
The union is the fifth largest in the UK, and represents more than 300,000 workers.
