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.
