About the Wales TUC

The Wales TUC is the voice of Wales at work. With almost 50 affiliated trade unions, the Wales TUC represents nearly half a million workers. We campaign for a fair deal at work and for social justice at home and abroad.

Fair Pay Fortnight animation

It's getting harder to make our pay packets stretch until the end of the month and more and more people are falling into debt. In our new animation we follow the lives of Gareth and Aisha and the every day challenges faced by millions of people who've been hit by the cost of living crisis.

The animation was created for our Britain Needs A Pay Rise campaign - a campaign to restore fairness to the nation's incomes - and launched during Fair Pay Fortnight (24 March to 6 April 2014). Fair Pay Fortnight is a campaign to raise awareness about Britain's cost of living crisis with two weeks of events across the country, run by the TUC and its affiliated unions.
