Commenting on the latest ONS inflation figures released today (Wednesday 24 May 2023), Unite general secretary Sharon Graham said: “Falling inflation does not mean we’ve reached a turning point where things can only get better. In the real world there’s no end in sight to the cost of living crisis.

“The cost of food is now reaching record highs - driven of course by rampant profiteering  by the supermarkets, in particular. Until profiteering is challenged there can be no respite from continuing inflation.”
