The TUC has brought together a group of public sector staff as 'The Workers' to re-record the classic song 'Let's Work Together' as a charity track that celebrates everything that is good about the public sector and raises money for today's pensioners.
The song, released on the NOVA MUSIC label and available to download from iTunes, Amazon and other leading online outlets, was launched on Monday 21 and will chart on Sunday 27 November - the week of the TUC day of action and what is likely to be the biggest strike in a generation.
The Workers are 14-strong and include a firefighter, probation officers, a teacher and health service staff including a nurse, midwives and a physiotherapist. The record was created and produced by Jeff Chegwin and Nick Patrick - the hit production team behind the million-selling group The Soldiers.
"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," TUC General Secretary Brendan Barber said.
"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."
