GMB Union says today’s figures showing real wages dropping as inflation runs rampant could spell disaster for working people.

Gary Smith, GMB General Secretary, said:

“Pay dropping at the same time as inflation runs rampant could spell disaster for too many working people.

"Real wages have suffered their biggest drop for a decade - yet the boss of the Bank of England still thinks people shouldn't ask for a pay rise.

"The best way to get wages rising is to empower trade unions. GMB is winning above inflation pay-rises for workers all across the country.

"And we need urgent action from the government to help people with the cost of living crisis."
