Reacting to the comments made today (9 July) by shadow chancellor Rachel Reeves on whether Labour would endorse the recommendations of the Pay Review Bodies (PRBs), Unite general secretary Sharon Graham said:

“It’s beyond belief that Labour is refusing either to commit to paying public sector workers a fair salary or to pledge it will accept the recommendations of the independent pay review bodies if it wins the next election.

“Unite, represents thousands of workers across the public sector, and I’m putting Labour on notice that it doesn’t matter who’s in power: when it comes to the jobs, pay and conditions of our members we will do what it takes to make sure they get a proper deal.”
