Pay Growth Down Again Says TUC

Commenting on today’s (Tuesday) labour market statistics from the Office for National Statistics – which show that nominal wage growth is down for the second month in a row and real wage growth has also fallen – TUC General Secretary Frances O’Grady said:

“Wage growth has slowed again. Boosting pay packets should be a priority for the government, but ministers are failing to act.

“We need to get the economy moving again. The government should put the minimum wage up to £10 and give all public servants a proper pay rise.

“Unions are fighting hard to get workers up and down the UK decent pay rises – and anyone wanting a pay rise should join a union. But the government should also give unions the right to go into every workplace and negotiate with employers for fair pay rises.”
