Activate August cover


Read and share the August issue of Activate

The latest issue focuses on the growing momentum in new pay campaign which callis for the end to the pay cap and looks back at the 10 July when hundreds of thousands of people took national action.

We also look forward to the 18 October TUC Britain Needs a Pay Rise march and rally.

As part of the direct debit campaign we look at how the Natural England branch is preparing to switch and there is a guide to early conciliation.

There is a preview of our latest tax justice report, which analyses UK tax evasion and is published this month. 

Rep David Greenall talks about his personal case work which often involves tackling prejudice.
