Connexions advice is: strike back

Issue No. 2244

Connexions careers advice workers across north west England protested against cuts to their service on Wednesday of last week.

There were lunchtime protests in Warrington, Chester, Manchester, Tameside, Liverpool, Blackpool, Bolton and Crewe.

Whole Connexions centres in the area are being shut down and careers advice in schools cut.

In Cheshire and Warrington alone, more than 360 workers are threatened with redundancy.
