Public sector workers in Sevenoaks and Swanley deserve to feel the benefits of the economic recovery by receiving pay increases by at least the rate of inflation, Liberal Democrat parliamentary candidate Alan Bullion said.
Liberal Democrats in government will ensure employees in the public sector are no longer subject to real term cuts in their pay.
That’s a minimum pay rise over the next two years of, for example:
- £350 for a nurse on £25,000
- £420 for a police officer on £30,000
- And nearly £500 for a teacher at one of local schools on £35,000
No more pay freezes or below inflation pay rises. We can do this because with the Liberal Democrats, there is light at the end of the tunnel.
Our balanced approach to the economy – tackling the deficit but doing it fairly – means the Liberal Democrats are the only party that can make this commitment for the next parliament.
