Gary Smith, GMB General Secretary, said:

“Today’s inflation figures are no surprise to people across the country who are seeing their bills go through the roof.

“As prices climb ever higher, workers in both the public and private sector are facing real terms pay cuts, with many struggling to keep their families fed and clothed.

“People everywhere are being hit with this cost-of-living crisis, but the lack of any credible energy and industrial strategy from this Government is making things worse.

“It’s clear that there are more problems on the way, with the UK’s broken energy market set to increase prices even further in 2022.

“GMB says it's time the people of our country got the pay rise they deserve."
