Winning a pay rise for key workers


Day in, day out key workers take care of us. And during the pandemic - they never stopped. All of our key workers need a pay rise.

When the shelves needed stocking - they were there. When hospitals were at breaking point - they were there. When children needed support and care - they were there. Throughout the pandemic they went to work and risked their lives to care for us.

Now we must support their demands for a pay rise

Here's five ways you can show your support today:
