Equalities take a strike break

Issue No. 2250

PCS union members at offices of the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) across Britain were to walk out for an hour from 11am on Wednesday of this week and again on Wednesday of next week.

Bosses plan to close all EHRC public advice services and regional offices, more than halve the number of staff and turn the commission into a remote think-tank.

This comes after the government has subjected the EHRC to cuts of 68 percent.

Supporters are urged to visit pickets at the commission’s offices in London, Manchester, Birmingham, Cardiff and Glasgow.
