Shelter charity workers to strike again

Workers at homelessness charity Shelter will be striking on 24 April alongside tens of thousands of other workers against attacks on pay and conditions.

The strike will continue on 25 April, and will be the second two-day stoppage.

Workers oppose changes orchestrated by management that would see the abolition of incremental pay awards, an extension to the working week that would amount to an extra 3 weeks unpaid work over the course of the year, the downgrading of posts throughout Shelter's advice and support service and changes to reduncancy policy.

The changes would see some workers losing over £5,000 per year.
