Tim Roache “Most people can't sail off into the sunset on a luxury yacht whenever there's a water shortage. United Utilities waste more than 175 Olympic-sized swimming pools of water every day – plug the leaks and you won't need a hosepipe ban.” 📰 read more >> https://dailym.ai/2O36RHc
Our Rachel Harrison: “All that glitters is not gold and it's now clear that Jeremy Hunt's last act was to try and mislead NHS workers who have already endured years of real-terms pay cuts. We have always warned that the devil would be in the detail, and so it has proved." #itsanofromus
🗣️💬 Stuart Fegan, GMB National Officer: "It’s a disgrace that customers face a £1,000 fine as private water fat cats trouser millions, all the while failing to invest to tackle leakages. Whatever the weather, we need to take back the tap and ensure our water services are run in the interests of the public once more and not just the few at the top.”
✊ Stephanie Peacock MP is right - the Government should ensure ALL workers on ALL shifts have the right to the National Minimum Wage; including care workers on sleep-ins. Thanks for raising this in Parliament today. Agree? Hit share👇
💬 Our Rehana Azam: "This is a backward-facing judgement for low paid, mostly women, care workers who look after the most vulnerable in our society. Care workers should be paid at least the national minimum wage for time spent being on call whilst on so-called sleep-ins."
🗣️💬 Tim Roache "Our Prime Minister should not be inviting Donald Trump to tear down hard won protections that keep us all safe when we work, travel and shop. When I hear politicians who already have a dodgy record on workers' rights talk about bureaucratic barriers that frustrate business, I don’t just hear words, I hear alarm bells."
