The Public Services, Tax and Commerce Union (PTC) was a short-lived trade union in the United Kingdom.
The union was formed in January 1996, when the Inland Revenue Staff Federation merged with the National Union of Civil and Public Servants. The general secretaries of the two former unions, Clive Brooke and John Sheldon respectively, became joint general secretaries of the new union.
The union's primarily worked in the Civil Service, but also in other public organisations. In March 1998, the union joined with the Civil and Public Services Association (CPSA), forming the Public and Commercial Services Union (PCS).

“To emancipate [the slaves] entirely throughout the Union cannot, I conceive, be thought of, consistently with the safety of the country.”
—Frances Trollope (17801863)
“I am not able to instruct you. I can only tell that I have chosen wrong. I have passed my time in study without experience; in the attainment of sciences which can, for the most part, be but remotely useful to mankind. I have purchased knowledge at the expense of all the common comforts of life: I have missed the endearing elegance of female friendship, and the happy commerce of domestic tenderness.”
—Samuel Johnson (17091784)
“The chief internal enemies of any state are those public officials who betray the trust imposed upon them by the people.”
—Dalton Trumbo (19051976)
“People buy their necessities in shops and have to pay dearly for them because they have to assist in paying for what is also on sale there but only rarely finds purchasers: the luxury and amusement goods. So it is that luxury continually imposes a tax on the simple people who have to do without it.”
—Friedrich Nietzsche (18441900)
