Quick. Buy some candles and canned goods. The Equality and Human Rights Commission are going on strike. http://bbc.in/m2Aqrg
Nevertheless, the BBC breathlessly reports this truly massive disaster—surely the Coalition will not be able to ride this one out.
Staff at the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) are to strike next week in protest at planned job cuts.
Trade union Unite said its members would walk out for an hour on Monday at EHRC offices in London and Birmingham, with more strikes possible on 30 June.
Wow—a whole hour! These people are really confident in their strike, eh? I don't suppose you could make it longer, could you?
[Richard Munn, of Unite] accused senior management of being wary of discussing plans with trade unions in a "constructive fashion", adding that the public "should be worried about the direction the EHRC is taking".
I was worried about the direction it was taking some years ago—when it was formed. As far as I can see, the EHRC is being managed out of existence and, far from being worried, I am delighted that this prissy, divisive and racist organisation seems to be being put out to pasture.
