Government must commit to ending pay cap now, says UNISON 

Responding to government plans to review the one per cent public sector pay cap, UNISON general secretary Dave Prentis said: “This review is a step in the right direction.

“But the government has to commit to ending the pay cap and not use the review as a stalling tactic.

“Ministers must also recognise the impact of the wage freeze on public sector employees, and on the services they provide.

“It’s clear that austerity isn’t working. Public sector workers have waited long enough and won’t tolerate any more delays.”
