Pay Up Now!
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%.
Public sector workers need a pay rise!
Watch the campaign’s new satirical film ‘Pat on the Back’. It highlights the government’s hypocritical attitude to public servants – commending their dedication and hard work, yet refusing to lift the public sector pay cap. Former Dynasty star Stephanie Beacham takes up the mantel for public services. Share the Facebook film with your friends and help galvanise public opinion against this intransigent government.
There is now real pressure to scrap the 1% cap on public sector wages and UNISON is leading the fight to get public sector workers the pay rise they deserve. More and more people are listening and supporting our Pay Up Now! campaign.
As a Branch we have held a number of Pay Up Now events across the Trust and will continue to do so until the cap is scrapped! If you would like help in holding an event in your workplace, please go to the contact page and drop us a line or conatct your local rep. We have the willpower, the person power and the resources to help you!
