Call for Government to set example on internet at work

The
Public and Commercial Services (PCS) union is calling on the Government to give
its employees access to the internet at work and set an example for other
employers.

The
PCS wants its 288,000 members, who work in the civil service and companies
supplying government services, to be able to use e-mail, employer intranet
systems and the internet at work.

The
union has also launched its own website which will have content tailored to
individuals and union representatives based on their employer.

It
will also have the facility to collect opinion polling, discussion groups and
e-mailing lists.

PCS
general secretary Mark Serwotka said: "The PCS website will allow us to
give our members and representatives a better service at national, regional and
employer levels.

"Our
members need to be able to access the website not just from home or in the
community, but at work. Modern workplaces should be fully ‘e’-enabled."
