GMB Union has responded to today’s labour market statistics, which show wages falling at their fastest rate for a decade.

GMB’s annual congress takes place in Harrogate this week, 12 - 16 June.

Gary Smith, GMB General Secretary, said:

“Wages are falling at their fastest rate for a decade. People are hurting.

“But this Prime Minister – and the boss of the Bank of England – are happy to tell workers to show restraint; that they shouldn’t ask for a proper pay rise.

”It’s out of touch and tin-eared. They just don’t understand what people are going through.”
