Our policy for the public sector, 1978

In July 1978, the Labour Government introduced a new guideline for pay rises of 5%. The TUC voted on 26 July to reject the limit and insist on a return to free collective bargaining. Although the government did not make the 5% limit a legal requirement, it decided to impose sanctions on government contractors who broke the limit.

This pamphlet from the Transport and General Workers' Union argues against the application of incomes policy pay limits for the public services.
