Inflation rise should not derail government action to protect working people - TUC

Commenting on the inflation figures, which show CPI rising to 2.1% in May, TUC General Secretary Frances O’Grady recently (16 June 2021) said:  

“Inflation is only just above target and the current emphasis must be on supporting the economy.

“The government must continue with interventions to give working people the security they need, and to protect hard-hit industries and the millions of workers still furloughed.

“To keep jobs safe, businesses should not be hit with higher furlough contributions in July, and the furlough scheme must be extended.”
