A mother and daughter midwife duo are part of a 14 strong group of public sector staff, “The Workers”, that has released a song to support the “day of action” on 30 November against pension changes.
The group has recorded the song Let’s Work Together as a charity track with about 40p out of the 99p cost being donated to Age UK to show support for pensioners. The track was released today and will enter the charts on Sunday.
The group, formed by the Trades Union Congress, includes five health workers. Pictured (l-r) are midwives Anita Marshall, Viv Gosden, and Rosie Gosden, nurse Aly Ottaway and physiotherapist Michael Pearson.
TUC general secretary Brendan Barber said: “No song could better meet our twin goals. Not only does it capture the determination of public sector staff to reach a fair settlement of the pensions issue but also what is so special about the magnificent people who provide our vital services.
“But better still, this is not just some karaoke sing-along. We have discovered some real stars who have made this into a track that will get even ministerial toes tapping.”
The record was created and produced by Jeff Chegwin and Nick Patrick – the production team behind the million-selling group The Soldiers.
