Message of support to Unison strikers from Jean Lambert MEP

“I wholeheartedly support UNISON’s call for fair pay for local Government workers. New research has found that public sector wages are around 30% lower than in the private sector and that is not beneficial for workers or for public services. As the cost of living increases public sector workers should not be expected to suffer disproportionately.Local government workers deserve a fair deal and that is why I am supporting the strike action on 16th and 17th July.”
