Unison Wales 'Scrap the Cap' campaign heads to Parliament


I was pleased to show my support for Unison Wales' 'Scrap The Cap' campaign in Parliament this week.

Inflation is currently at 2.9%, meaning that the cap is a significant annual pay cut for public sector workers including nurses, care workers, teaching assistants, social workers and so many others. 

Public sector pay has risen by just 4.4% between 2010 and 2016 while the cost of living rose by 22%.

It's time the Government gave our public service workers a long-overdue pay rise.
