The Interim Committee met at the end of April in London. It was an opportunity for some of us to meet in person for the first time, see how we're working together, and what might be emerging as priorities for PCU.
Out of this, and arising from issues members have been raising, came the plan for a Campaigning Conference, focused on unpaid work and charitable agencies, with space for input on other campaigns members want to see happen.
More details to follow, but keep this date in your diaries: Saturday October 1st, London (venue tbc)
