BTUC in Solidarity with Enrico La Rocca PCS member

“At an extraordinary delegates meeting on the 6th August, Birmingham TUC discussed and unanimously passed a motion in solidarity with Enrico La Rocca, recently dismissed by the Department of Work and Pensions after 27 years of service.

Enrico has been dismissed for exposing “shocking ineptitude” (the words of the Chair of the Work and Pensions Select Committee, not ours) at the DWP in relation to their treatment of recipients of the Carers Allowance.

We offer Enrico and all workers facing punishment for whistleblowing and doing the right thing our solidarity and we hope we will be joined in doing so by the whole labour movement.

Enrico has been punished for doing the right thing and that is a disgrace.
