TUC's 'living wage' call to mayor
THE TUC is calling for Bristol's new mayor to kickstart the city's economy by getting people back to work and paying them a Living Wage.
The TUC represents 100,000 working people in the city and believes the successful candidate should support an alternative to austerity and commit thermselves to policies which promote economic growth.
Nigel Costley, regional secretary of the South West TUC, said: "Bristol is a great place but life can be tough at the present time with incomes being squeezed, unemployment high, affordable housing hard to access, public services being cut and welfare being slashed.
"We hope the new mayor – whoever it is – will share our vision of ensuring Bristol can be enjoyed by everyone equally, whether they live here, work here or are just visiting."

Mr Costley said: "The South West TUC is the federation of trade unions so is not affiliated to any political party. As the voice of working people, however, we have a responsibility to encourage debate and to express views based on the values of trade unionism.
"Above all, the TUC wants a mayor who is proud to promote and represent this wonderful city, and work hard for all its citizens."
