Rishi Sunak: public sector pay demands could cost families £1,000

Guardian, 09 Dec 2022
Rishi Sunak has claimed that families would have to pay an extra £1,000 a year if the government met the pay demands of public sector workers in full. On a visit to RAF Coningsby in Lincolnshire, asked about the strikes, the prime minister said: ‘I’m not going to do is ask ordinary families up and down the country to pay an extra £1,000 a year to meet the pay demands of the union bosses. That wouldn’t be right and it wouldn’t be fair.’
When asked to give details of the new anti-union legislation being planned, Sunak said he was looking at 'tough' new laws, adding that the government ‘is trying its best to act reasonably’
