PPI Claim: Council workers 'at risk of poverty'

Public sector workers could offset their frozen income levels with a loan refund.

According to Unison, more than one million low-paid government workers have not had a pay rise for two years. During this time the cost of living has continued to climb and incomes are worth increasingly less.

Helen Wakefield, the union's head of local government, said that if the wages remain the same for a third consecutive year then a large amount of families will slip into poverty.

"Council workers are already suffering from cuts to jobs and services, their terms and conditions are under attack at local level and the government plans to change their pensions," she added.

Unison has collaborated with Unite and GMB to lodge a pay claim on behalf of the workers.

Brendan Barber, general secretary of the Trades Union Congress, recently called for the national minimum wage to be increased by more than the rate of inflation.
