Friday podcast: Equality Bill, diversity, unions vote strike, prayer rooms

HR news and analysis including:

  • Unions have voted for a two day strike next month over a low pay offer, and local government officials have criticised the action. Jim Savege, the lead on pay for the Public Sector People Managers’ Association, and Phil White, the head of negotiations at Local Government Employers, spoke to Mike Berry.
  • The government calls on employers and unions to help trade union representatives increase equality and diversity, after complaints that they were receiving unfair treatment from both sides. Harriet Harman and Jonathan Rees comment.
  • We discuss the controversial Equalities Bill, and a new guide for employers about the use of prayer rooms in the company workplace.

Presenter Guy Logan is joined this week by Mike Berry, Greg Pitcher and John Charlton.
