Poster: How much are prices really going up?

posterThe attached two posters show clearly how the pay offers from London Underground and Transport for London - of a measly 1.5% this year (with an even more measly 0.5% in following years) - will not cover the real rising cost of living. In other words, it is a pay cut.

Using information from this article, the poster shows the rate at which various essential food products are rising - in all cases, by much more than the official inflation figures, and much more than our employer wants to increase our pay.

LUL's and TfL's pay 'offer' will leave you with less money in your pocket - fight for a better one!
