Deputy General Secretary Dai Hudd said the 50% levy on bank bonuses in the Pre-Budget Report would still leave bankers with half their bonuses while civil servants would be held to pay rises of 1% or less for the next three years.
“To our members, even half the bonuses being paid to the people who brought the British economy to its knees would look like all their Christmases had come at once.
“Public servants will still be pulling people from floods, coming to their aid in traffic accidents and protecting the public against threats to animal and human health. They will do this without a bonus of any kind, simply because that is their job.
“It remains incomprehensible why these dedicated public servants should have to be penalised for the sins of the banking sector.”
