TREASURY MINISTERS CLINGING TO THE WRECKAGE OF FAILED PUBLIC SECTOR PAY POLICY

Treasury Ministers clinging to the wreckage of failed public sector pay policy

 

Commenting on the recent statements by the Chancellor of the Exchequer on public sector pay and his claims of a 10% pay premium for public sector workers, Chris Keates, General Secretary of the NASUWT-the teachers’ union said:

 

“Yet another Government minister seeks to promulgate misleading information in an attempt to mask the Government’s shameful record on public sector pay and the adverse impact of the unnecessary pay cap on workers delivering vital services to the public.

 

“Only two weeks ago the Chief Secretary to the Treasury was making equally misleading claims in Parliament about teachers’ pay. The NASUWT has written to her requesting that her statements be corrected.

 

“The Treasury is clinging to the wreckage of a policy which has driven education and many other public services to  crisis point and vainly hoping the public won’t notice.”
