(ANSA) - LONDON, OCTOBER 26 - Millions of nurses, teachers and other public employees in Great Britain must receive a salary increase next April after the conservative government announced the end of the wage freeze introduced last November when the Covid emergency raged.

    The post-pandemic measure is one of those anticipated, on the eve of the presentation of the autumn maneuver to Parliament in Westminster, by Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak, and joins the increase in the minimum hourly wage of 6.6% already announced yesterday. The extent of the wage increase for the state has not yet been established, which will depend on the considerations made by the Treasury and the independent bodies that receive suggestions from workers and trade unions. "Now, with the economy back on track, it's only fitting that nurses, teachers and all other public sector workers who played their part during the pandemic should see their wages rise," Sunak said.

    The Treasury has specified that despite the freezing of public sector salaries, more than one million workers of the NHS, the national health service, have received a pay increase of 3% for 2021/22: on average for nursing staff this translates into £ 1,000 more per year.
