I fully support the Unison’s Pay Up Now campaign for a pay rise for public sector workers. Its time for UK Government to lift public sector pay cap and I have written to the Prime Minister calling on her to abandon the cap.
Public sector workers carry out vital work delivering the services we all rely on and need to be paid properly for the hard work they do.
Since the cap was introduced government debt has increased to £1.7trillion. The Government cannot go on attempting to balance the budget off the backs of public sector workers.
