Save free TV licences for over 75s

Stripping the over 75s of their free TV licences is a retrograde step. It ends the universal nature of free TV licences and will price older people, living in isolation, out of an important link with their communities and the wider world.

Please support Unite retired members like Fran, in their fight to get this cruel decision reversed.

Watching TV is vital lifeline for millions of pensioners. If this decision goes ahead, older people, who rely on their TVs for news and companionship, will be cut off from the outside world, and could end up being fined for not having a licence. This is unacceptable. The government needs to take back responsibility. Its failure to provide proper funding is to blame.

The workers who should have been paid today have received nothing and have to still somehow pay mortgages, rent, bills and food. While other European countries acted to preserve airlines, the UK government allowed the entire company to crash.” #PayUpNow
