.5% pay offer is no offer!
We all know by now that the body representing the employer has made an 'offer' of .5% for this years pay negotiations. This is of course not acceptable and it is, to say the least, provocative. The employer is obviously hoping that the current economic climate will force us to agree reductions and lower pay rises, this is at the same time as MPs are giving themselves a 2.5% increase. We must resist and fight against this provocation! On top of that we will have to fight an attack on our pensions that seems to be around the corner. Time to unite and fight?
