GMB, Britain’s general union, has responded to today’s figures showing employment levels have fallen 58,000 in the third quarter of this year

Neil Foster, GMB National Policy Officer, said:

“It is extraordinary to witness shameless Tory politicians patting themselves on the back for an economy which has 58,000 fewer people in work than the three months before.

“The Government's hostility to our public services and failure to stand up for British manufacturing has cost decent jobs and led to insecurity and lower paid work.

“We need to rebuild our public services and commit to an active industrial strategy to create more and better jobs in communities throughout the UK.” 

“Instead the Tories are offering more of the same failed policies which have made life hard for so many working people and put the UK economy in a precarious position."
