GMB, Britain’s general union, has responded to today’s official growth figures from the ONS by accusing the Government of bringing the UK to a ‘Juddering Halt’

The latest figures released today from the ONS showed flat GDP growth from August to October.

Jude Brimble, GMB National Officer said:

“The U.K. economy has come to a juddering halt, choked by a Conservative feel-bad factor.

“British manufacturing has been driven into reverse after years of government neglect, a damaging approach to Brexit and a complete lack of industrial strategy.”

“We need an immediate change of direction and a Labour government with a plan for the future of British manufacturing to provide much needed confidence, investment and jobs.”
