TUC campaign song to benefit Age UK

TUC campaign song to benefit Age UK

A group of public sector staff supported by the Trades Union Congress have created a record that supports the TUC’s upcoming Day of Action on 30 November, and which will raise funds for Age UK.

The group, called The Workers, has re-recorded the 1970s track ‘Let’s Work Together’. The TUC will donate “a major part of the sale price, equivalent to about 40p out of the 99p cost in most outlets” to Age UK “to show support for today’s pensioners”.

The TUC hopes that the song, performed by people including midwives, a firefighter, probation officers, a teacher, and a social worker, will “get people talking about the importance of the public sector and its staff”. It hopes that the song will top the charts on 27 November, at the beginning of the week of the TUC Day of Action.

The Workers are 14-strong and include a firefighter, probation officers, a teacher, civil servant, social worker, student support officer and health service staff including a nurse, midwives, a physiotherapist and a clinical engineer.

The song is available for download from iTunes, Amazon and other online retail outlets.
