Commenting on the record three per cent fall in wages in real terms for UK workers, Unite general secretary Sharon Graham said:

“This record fall in real wages demonstrates the vital need for unions like Unite to defend the value of workers’ pay.

“It also underlines the fact that - as we have said many times - wages are not driving inflation. We will continue to do whatever is necessary to defend jobs, pay and conditions during this cost-of-living crisis.”
