To Chancellor of the Exchequer, Rishi Sunak
Give our frontline workers the pay rise they deserve - not a pay freeze
Our frontline workers, like nurses and other NHS staff, have risked - and in far too many cases tragically lost - their lives during this coronavirus pandemic. They deserve a permanent pay rise for the sacrifices they’ve made.
But now it’s been leaked that the government could freeze their wages instead. It’s a slap in the face to those who’ve given so much for us all.
Week in, week out, we take to our windows and doors to clap and cheer our frontline workers because, to us, they’re heroes. After this, they deserve a pay rise, not a pay freeze.
Tens of thousands of members of the British public.
