Measuring the impact of public service reform

Runnymede has been commissioned by TUC, UNISON, Unite, PCS, UCU and NASUWT to look at race equality and public service reform. Through this project we aim to assess the impact of cuts on the profile of the public sector workforce, to connect individuals and organisations working to promote equality through this difficult period, and to provide up to date monitoring data to inform employers and government about the impact of their choices and hold them to account under their equality legislation responsibilities.

There are 4 elements to this project.

  1. A research paper exploring the likely impact of public sector cuts on minority ethnic workers

  2. An online survey to collect information from union branch representatives across public services in England

  3. An online guide to monitoring public sector cuts for union branch representatives by Dr Debbie Weekes-Bernard and Ojeaku Nwabuzo

  4. A final report that includes findings from the survey and human interest stories from public sector workers
