During the pandemic key workers never stopped. 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.

They risk their lives every day. Yet they get paid 8% less than the average. This isn’t okay. Nurses, teachers, care workers, cleaners and all key workers deserve a pay rise. And the TUC has a plan to make it happen.

Their plan will only work if you get involved. Join the call and step up to take action for key workers. They cared for us. Now it’s our turn to care for them.

Find out more about how you can get involved, including signing up to their strategy call on Tuesday 9 February at 6:00 pm, on the TUC’s website.
