Open letter to Jeremy Lefroy RE: Queens Speech Amendment Public Sector Pay Cap
This petition had 204 supporters
Dear Jeremy Lefroy, MP
On June 28th 2017 you voted against a proposed amendment to the Queen's Speech that would have seen the public sector pay cap scrapped.
Twenty-seven per cent of Stafford's workforce is employed in the public sector. These employees have on average received a pay increase of just 3% since 2010. Accounting for inflation, that represents a considerable decrease in pay over the last 7 years. Particularly when compared with the private sector where average pay has increased considerably more.
With such a high proportion of public sector employment in the constituency, the pay cap is not only affecting public sector employees, but also other local businesses who depend on consumer spending.
Please could you, on behalf of the signatories below, explain why you voted against scrapping the pay cap and why that was in the best interest of your constituents?
