Public sector pay

Asked whether the public sector pay deals were set in stone or whether there was any room for manoeuvre given that inflation had gone down, the PMS said the Government’s view on multi-year deals was that they played an important role in providing stability in the economy.

Last year when inflation went up there were a number of calls to re-open public sector pay deals and we made clear then as we have made clear today that the Government has no plans to re-open the multi-year pay deals. These provide an important source of stability in the economy, for the Government but also crucially for key groups of workers such as nurses, police officers, and teachers.

  1. whether anyone likes it or not, there is going to be a major cull of the bloated public sector simply because the Country can no longer afford it and the diminishing (wealth-generating) taxpayers will eventually cause bloody mayhem if they are put upon for much longer.

    Nice try Gordon – keep 600,000 people off the unemployemnt lists by giving them non-jobs and turn them into labour voters – but it is all beginning to unravel. Be prepared.
