Smash the pay cap! What you can do to win 5%

For too long public sector workers have been underpaid.

Our wages have fallen behind as prices and the cost of living increase.

In real terms we have lost 14% of our salary since 2010.

Now there is a campaign to break the public sector pay cap.  UNISON and other public sector unions have put in a 5% pay claim.

But we all need to get behind this campaign to win it.

What you can do to help.
