Next PCS Strike at EHRC on 6th June

PCS workers at the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) are taking industrial action over planned cuts to their advice service. They have already held two 1 hour strikes, which were well attended and supported by Birmingham Against the Cuts amongst other local groups.

Their next strike will be on Monday 6th June, 11:30 – 12:30, Lancaster House, 67 Newhall Street, Birmingham, B3 1NA.

By taking regular but short strikes they will draw attention to how the cuts will affect the service and show a willingness to take further action, whilst minimising the disruption to people who desperately need to use the advice service provided.

Laura, who works at the office said:

I wanted to thank you all for your support over the industrial action that the EHRC has taken recently and to say that your support has enabled a wider audience to see what devastation the cuts are  to have in general for all disadvantaged individuals.
We will be seeking to send a delegation from Birmingham Against the Cuts to support this action, and hope that you will be able to join us, and the workers taking action to defend their public service.
Reports from previous strikes: 4th May & 11th May
