Equity to increase subs to £120

by -

Equity’s annual subscription rate will increase to a minimum of £120, after representatives voted in favour of 3.45% hike to rates.

The percentage increase, which comes into effect from January 2014, was passed by a two thirds majority at the Equity ARC. Under the plans, there will still be a £5 discount for paying by direct debit, while the union’s entrance fee will increase from £28.

The increase was put forward by the union’s ruling council. Equity honorary treasurer Bryn Evans told the ARC that the increase was necessary to keep place with inflation.

He said: “The prospects for this year do not look good and most commentators expect inflation to increase in the second half of 2013 and ,when inflation increases, so do Equity’s costs.”

    The General Secretary has a lot to answer for…
