Fair Pay Fortnight 2015

British workers have endured the longest pay squeeze since records began. They are now getting paid £2,500 a year less, on average, than they were in 2010.

We need a recovery that benefits the many, not just the few. From 16 Feb to 1 March the TUC is organising Fair Pay Fortnight – a series of events across England and Wales to make the case for fair pay. 

Find out what is happening in your area and join the campaign for fair pay and decent jobs.​ www.fairpayfortnight.org.uk
