  • Sky News published this video item, entitled “TUC: Public sector pay freeze would be ‘morally obscene'” – below is their description.

    Frances O’Grady, general secretary of the Trades Union Congress, says the public sector workers that “kept Britain going” during the pandemic should be rewarded for it. She said a potential public sector pay freeze – which amounts to a pay cut, due to inflation – would re-introduce austerity for the “people that put their health and, in some cases, lives on the line to help the rest of us”. Speaking to Sophy Ridge, Ms O’Grady called it “bad economics”, refusing to rule out strike action.
