1 Million In Limbo Over Pay

Tuesday, July 24, 2018

THERESA MAY LEAVES 1 MILLION IN LIMBO OVER ‘CLOAK AND DAGGER’ PAY BRIEFING SAYS GMB

This is not the way to treat dedicated public sector workers who have already suffered eight years of real terms pay cuts says GMB Union

GMB, the union for public sector workers, has slammed ‘out of touch’ Theresa May for leaving one million people in limbo.

Reports suggests a million public-sector workers will receive their first pay increase above 1 per cent since 2013.

But the announcement has been sneaked out on the last day of Parliament before summer recess - leaving more questions than answers.

Rehana Azam, GMB National Secretary, said:

“One million public sector workers have been left in limbo by this cloak and dagger briefing on the last day of Parliament.

“This is not the way to treat dedicated public sector workers who have already suffered eight years of real terms pay cuts.

“They haven’t even made a proper announcement - it just shows how out of touch Theresa May is.

“In another cynical bid to save her own skin, she is riding roughshod over the proper pay mechanisms  - which should independently review public sector wages.
