PUBLIC SECTOR WORKERS ON STRIKE

The 2.45% pay offer to local government workers is clearly below the current inflation rate of 4% , meaning that they are set to lose out in real terms. This comes at a time when fuel costs are escalating at an alarming rate, meaning that many of these workers will be far worse off in future compared to their previous position. The lowest paid – many of whom are barely above the minimum wage – will be hardest hit.

Council staff provide key services to our local communities. We rely on these workers in our everday lives. They deserve a decent living.
