Due to the rapid spread of the coronavirus disease and the need to keep our staff, supporters and speakers safe, IER have decided to cancel all forthcoming IER events and meetings until further notice. That decision will impact on our two forthcoming health and safety events in April and May, the IER Executive Committee and IER AGM. Our joint event with the Campaign for Trade Union Freedom on 6th June has also been postponed until the autumn.

IER staff will continue to work, but remotely from home. We will answer emails, produce publications and circulate our weekly News Briefs and other on-line information. However, phone calls to the office or mail sent by post will not receive immediate attention.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused and wish you all best wishes during this difficult time.

Carolyn Jones, Director,
James Harrison, National Coordinator,
