Why not use UNISON’s pay calculator to give you an idea of how your pay has fallen behind the cost of living over the last seven years. Click here.
For years now, public service workers have seen their pay held back by government in the name of austerity. First a freeze then a cap saw public sector pay rise by just 4.4% between 2010 and 2016 while the cost of living rose by 22%.
As UNISON gets set to launch is major Pay Up Now campaign, you can use the calculator to show just how much you have lost due to the pay cap – and maybe think it is now time to do something about it.
