Strikers fight cuts to Hackney drug service

Issue No. 2290

Staff at the Lifeline drug treatment centre in Hackney, east London, are set to strike against service cuts on Thursday of next week.

The workers, members of the Unite union, voted by 25 to 1 to strike and 26 to 1 for action short of a strike. They are set to strike again on Wednesday 29 February.

Lifeline, funded by Hackney council, has shut its specialist support services for women and for the children of drug and alcohol-using parents.
