UK BURNOUT CRISIS: £26 BILLION GOES UNPAID

The Trades Union Congress (TUC) has released data showing UK workers contributed £26 billion in unpaid overtime last year, with 3.8 million people averaging 7.2 unpaid hours per week, amounting to £7,200 per worker, annually.

Teachers and senior executives are particularly affected.

Public sector workers contributed £11 billion in unpaid overtime, highlighting issues with service demands and staff burnout. London has the highest proportion of workers doing unpaid overtime.

The TUC is demanding employers ensure fair recording and payment for overtime and is emphasising the need for government action to address these issues and support public sector workers.
