For 7 years, government has restricted public sector pay rises to less than inflation - or nothing at all. But prices haven't stopped rising in that time, and inflation means nurses, firefighters, and other public servants’ wages are worth over £2,000 less than they were when the coalition government started in 2010.
Ahead of our lobby of Parliament on 17th October, we want to bring together public sector stories to hear their stories and hear what we are doing to end these restrictions.
Public meetings have been planned across the region. Details are below and meetings are open to all.
