GMB Call On MPs To Give Up Outside Paid Jobs As Independent Standards Authority Propose 10% Pay Rise For MPs
We trust that none of the MPs will now have the audacity to oppose the recommendations of Pay Review Bodies or decent pay rises for public sector workers says GMB.
GMB commented on the proposed £7,000 pay rise for MPs, after the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority which sets their salaries, restated its intention to increase their pay by 10% to £74,000.
Paul Kenny, GMB General Secretary, said "We look forward to this meaning that MPs will be able to devote 100% of their working time to the interests of their constituents rather than some of them lining their pockets with second, third and fourth paid jobs outside Parliament.
We trust that none of the MPs accepting this pay rise as public servants will have the audacity to oppose the recommendations of Pay Review Bodies or decent pay rises for public sector workers."
