As 2023 winds down, a rallying cry echoes through the public sector. With just three months left in the year, workers are turning up the heat, urging their union leaders to kickstart the 2024 Base Pay negotiations.
In 2023, there was cause for celebration as workers secured a 30% boost in their base pay. However, the shadow of high inflation cast a pall over the victory, leaving many struggling to make ends meet.
