Hearing Unite’s heated rhetoric against a public sector pay freeze, you might think that Unite doesn’t like the idea of pay freezes. Curious then that another leaked Unite document includes this about its own staff:
There is no pay increase for 2013.
It rather reminds me of Labour’s position on how inflation is calculated for pension purposes. So outraged about the change for state pensions that, er…, when it comes to its own staff pension scheme, Labour uses the very rules it opposes for others.
