Hosting UNISON Public Sector Pay Rise Campaign in Parliament.

October 17, 2017

Today in Parliament I hosted the UNISON Pay Up Now! campaign briefing for Welsh MPs.

For years now, public service workers have seen their pay held back by government in the name of austerity. First a freeze, then a cap saw public sector pay rise by just 4.4% between 2010 and 2016, while the cost of living rose by 22%.

That’s no way to treat hardworking people who play such a vital role in looking after us and holding our communities together – keeping us safe, healthy, educated, and cared for.

But we aren't giving up - Cardiff North has the most public sector workers in Wales, and I am going to keep putting pressure on the government until they get a pay rise!

SCRAP THE CAP!
