Gov Responded - 16 Oct 2020 Debated on - 14 Dec 2020 View Peter Dowd's petition debate contributions
20 Jan 2021
closed 2 months, 3 weeks ago

During the pandemic government workers have delivered vital public services and kept our country safe and secure. After ten years in which the real value of civil service pay has fallen, many face hardship. The Government must start to restore the real value of their pay with a 10% increase in 2020.

closed 6 months, 1 week ago

The government is helping private firms to protect jobs by paying up to 80% of staff wages through this crisis.
