Members of the Public and Commercial Services Union (PCS) who work for the Lifeline Royal Fleet Auxiliary have joined forces with their trade union colleagues from the Rail Maritime & Transport Union (RMT) and Nautilus in writing to the Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson MP.

In a letter to the Secretary of State for Defence, Rt Hon. Gavin Williamson MP, the General Secretaries of PCS, RMT and Nautilus call for a meeting to discuss how to end pay restraint in the RFA, following another year in which the 1% pay cap was imposed on RFA seafarer and shore based civilian staff.

PCS General Secretary, Mark Serwotka said:

"Staff at the RFA have suffered years of pay restraint as a result of the Government’s austerity programme. Alongside the rest of their colleagues in the civil service they need an above inflation pay rise to end this injustice. We will be urging the Defence Secretary to ensure that the Chancellor puts funding into the civil service to allow all public sector workers get the pay rise they deserve.

Based on research commissioned by the TUCG, the book examines why costs have risen for all items of expenditure, ranging from housing and child care to food and transport. He makes practical proposals on how these costs can be reduced. He also delivers an uncompromising message to the leaders of all mainstream Westminster Parties: it is time to end the politics of austerity, an ideological project to cut the size of the state permanently.
