Inflation rate - UNISON reaction

Tuesday 18 Dec 2012

The latest figures showing that inflation has remained static at 2.7% “is the lull before the storm” warned UNISON Chief Dave Prentis today.

He went on to say:
“Big increases in energy prices are set to hit in the New Year and the cost of feeding a family just keeps on going up.

“More than a million public sector workers have not had a pay rise for three years and the value of their take home pay just keeps on going down. It is a disgrace that this Government is instrumental in plunging so many families into poverty and turning to food banks for relief over Christmas.”
