Vital BreakthroughBack to all news
Wage subsidies package a vital breakthrough for workers and the economy, says TUC.
Commenting on the Chancellor’s announcement of TUC General Secretary Frances O’Grady said:
“This is a breakthrough. The Chancellor has shown real leadership. We’re glad he has listened to unions and taken vital steps to support working families.
Large-scale wages subsidies are the best way to boost household finances and keep businesses running. And they’ll help our economy bounce back after this crisis.
Employers across the economy can now be confident that they will be able to pay their wages bills. They must urgently reassure their staff that their jobs and livelihoods are safe. Unions will continue to work with business and government to protect jobs and livelihoods.”
