Emergency Action – Defend Jon Bigger, Stop Union Victimisation!


Communications Blockade of HM Passport Office

Time is running out to stop unjust and politically motivated redundancy in the Home Office.

A number of PCS reps in the Passport Office have been facing sustained attacks over the last few years. Disciplinary cases for reps is a common practice and long standing rep Jon Bigger has faced 3 years of victimisation during his redundancy case. This is his last week in the department unless they decide to avoid his redundancy.

As things stand they have refused to provide him with a role even when he has applied for them as the only candidate and they continue to recruit people at his grade. In the wider Home Office we have seen other PCS reps sacked on spurious charges. This is a hostile department that refuses to listen to reason. Only action will change their stance.

The Civil Service Rank and File Network is organising two communications blockades of the Passport Office and the Home Office. The first on Monday 5th August targets the Passport Office and the second on Thursday 8th targets the Home Office as a whole. Details are below. Please take some time to contact them and demand they stop victimising PCS reps and reinstate Jon Bigger.
