ACAS Dispute – Please Support Pickets

PCS members working as conciliators at ACAS began action short of strike on Wednesday 25 April which will include no obligation to undertake any reactive or proactive work on fast-track early conciliation cases or employment tribunal cases.

The dispute centres on imposed changes on staff, including the downgrading of conciliation work and increases to already heavy workloads. Conciliator members are trying to manage the unmanageable as a result of a restructure programme has been running for two years.

The planned action also includes a one-day strike on 11 May and a 2-day strike on 6 and 7 June.

Tolpuddle Martyrs Exhibition

Newspaper article about Tolpuddle Martyrs.This year on International Workers’ Day, the Marx Memorial Library is welcoming visitors to view our special Tolpuddle exhibition which looks at the Martyrs themselves, the wave of anger that swept across the country following their conviction and how their story has inspired workers’ struggles ever since. It also draws upon a unique collection of contemporary newspapers held at the Library that are now available online having been conserved and digitised thanks to sponsorship by the British and Australian trade union movements.
