Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

FOR­MER Corona­tion Street and Dy­nasty ac­tress Stephanie Beacham has lent her voice to a union cam­paign to give mil­lions of pub­lic sec­tor work­ers a pay rise.

She ap­pears in a short film made by Uni­son which praises the ded­i­ca­tion of teach­ing as­sis­tants, paramedics, refuse col­lec­tors and other pub­lic sec­tor staff.

It also crit­i­cises the Gov­ern­ment’s “hyp­o­crit­i­cal” at­ti­tude to their pay.

The 70-year-old said: “I wanted to do this film be­cause I find it deeply un­ac­cept­able that pub­lic ser­vice staff who keep us safe, look af­ter us when we’re ill and keep our lo­cal ser­vices run­ning haven’t seen a pay rise in seven years.

“Our pub­lic ser­vice work­ers de­serve more than a measly pat on the back, they need sub­stan­tially more money in their pock­ets.

“The pub­lic sec­tor pay cap has to go now, and be re­placed with a de­cent wage.” YOU can re­move blood stains on clothes with Coca-Cola.
