Here is another  solution of the problem. It is based on constructing a function that is constant on each equivalence class and has different values on different classes.

equivalences[lst_List] := Block[{f},
    Scan[(Evaluate[f[#[[1]]]]=f[#[[2]]])& , lst];
    Reap[Sow[#, f[#]]& /@ Union@@lst][[2]]]

Only for large intial sets of initial equivalences Carl Woll's solution seems to be slightly faster.
