Pay – your share

While some (usually very well paid) people keep telling us we’re “all in it together”, the TUC has published a report highlighting the fact that UK workers are getting a falling proportion of national output. Had this kept up with where we were 30 years ago, workers would take home £60bn a year more between us.
The impact has been greatest amongst lower earners, reflecting the widening wage gap.
There’s even a tool where you can work out what your wage would be if workers’ share of national output hadn’t fallen over the last 30 years.

Sign the petition – defend the union

Unite members across Fujitsu Services Limited in the UK are fighting over job security, for union recognition, against victimisation of reps, and over pay and pensions. Members nationally took industrial from 28 February including 15 days of strikes and ongoing action short of strike, after 12 days of local strikes in Manchester.

INDUSTRIAL ACTION IS CURRENTLY SUSPENDED but members have voted by 92% to reject a company offer.

Further information is available here including a downloadable appeal for support leaflet and how to donate to our strike fund.
