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.
Please sign this Parliamentary petition to get it debated in Parliament. We need 100,000 signatures (currently on 73,000!) https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/200032

Wear badges and stickers
We have loads of badges and stickers in the union office in International House, please pop over to pick some up. If you are not allowed to wear them at work then wear them on outdoor coats, put stickers on the back of your mobile or the back of your ID badge.
Put posters up at work
We also have posters for union notice boards. Get in touch with us at the union office to get some.
