Striking AMs should lose pay - Opposition leader

Those AMs refusing to attend the Senedd because of strike action by civil servants should be docked some of their pay, according to the Opposition leader. Andrew RT Davies says,

Striking Assembly Members should consult their consciences very carefully and either give up their pay and pension contributions or donate them to charity.

Other public sector workers will lose a day’s pay for joining the picket line and it is unfair, greedy and hypocritical for Assembly Members to keep theirs.

I remain hopeful that Labour and Plaid Members will still decide to come to work and debate issues of national importance in the Assembly.
