Mark Serwotka Biography

ENG:

 

Mark Serwotka (born 26 April 1963) is the General Secretary of the Public and Commercial Services Union (PCS), the trade union for British civil servants.

 

Political activity

Serwotka became a union representative in 1980 and a personal case officer in 1995. In the 2000 election that saw Serwotka elected General Secretary, he initially faced two rival candidates: Hugh Lanning of the Membership First faction and the incumbent Barry Reamsbottom of the National Moderate Group. However, Reamsbottom did not secure the fifty branch nominations needed to appear on the ballot paper. Serwotka then beat Lanning with 41,000 to 33,000 votes.

 

Serwotka was a member of Socialist Organiser in the late 1980s and early 1990s. He was later a supporter of the Socialist Alliance and then Respect.

 

Personal

Married, Serwotka is an avid Cardiff City fan and lives in Chipstead, Surrey. Ahead of a visit by Pope Benedict XVI in September 2010, Serwotka was named as one of the hundred most influential Catholics in Britain by The Tablet.
