CITY PAY PACKETS ROCKET - UNISON RESPONSE
research by the Centre for Economics and Business Research (Cebr),
which shows that city workers' pay has risen by 7% in a year,
compared to a growth of 2% across the UK as a whole, Dave Prentis,
UNISON's General Secretary, said:- "Public sector workers
facing pay freezes, job losses and rising inflation will be stunned

national average. The financial sector is doing very nicely in this
recession while, in the real world, low-paid families are left to
pick up the pieces. It cannot be right that the sector that caused
the recession can continue with this champagne lifestyle, while the
economy goes from bad to worse. The Government has abandoned any
attempt at fairness, by taking the easy option to cut deep the
public sector, while dodging decisions about clamping down on the
bonus culture and making everyone pay their fair share."
