The Tories are coming under pressure to renege on one of their major manifesto promises, to maintain the triple lock tying pension increases to pay rises.
Our state pensions is not good enough, but still need to be protected from this government
Fairness isn’t a phrase I can associate with this current government. So when the chancellor talks about being fair it is worth looking a bit closer at what he might mean.

Dear GMB Member

Everyone in membership of GMB on 31 March 2021 is entitled to vote in this important election.
GMB union celebrates May Day in honour of the struggle of workers.
May Day, 1st May each year, has been an internationally recognised date to basically celebrate.
It’s election time soon and we all have the chance to place an X against a name and party to select our political servants, Thursday 6 May 2021.
Many MPs and councillors appear to have forgotten that they are here to serve the public. They are supposed to be Public Servants - it’s in the name - but not always in the practice.
Ann O’Byrne fits that bill and we fully believe she will make a huge difference to the way the city is run.
GMB union regional political officer, Neil Smith, is supporting Ann O’Byrne as Labour candidate for Liverpool Mayor.
As one of the biggest trade unions in the UK the GMB trade union can boast a positive impact on the lives of many working people. Our campaigns on employment rights, health and safety, Public services and the need for the most robust Covid safe conditions across the country are there to be shouted about and pursued robustly.
Is it because of shortages through incompetence? We need to know why less than 8 million people out of around 56 million have been vaccinated so far.
GMB regional political offer, Neil Smith says ‘’It is Cold Up North for political equality and vaccine supply.’’
As a trade union tied into the traditions of the labour movement and an affiliate of the Labour Party the GMB union wants to play a big part in achieving a better society.
And as the UK prepares for a festive season such has never experienced before, people are facing uncertainty about so many things, but one thing most of us want is an end to the way this country is being run.
