This morning I announced that Redbridge Council will become an accredited living wage employer in the next municipal year.
I made this announcement as part of Living Wage Week which takes place each year during the first week of November.
By Redbridge Council paying the real Living Wage we are taking a stand to ensure our employees can earn a wage which is enough to live on in London. This also sets a precedent and model for other employers in the Borough.
I encourage all employers in Redbridge and further afield to join me in becoming a Living Wage employer – More information on the living wage foundation can be found here: www.livingwage.org.uk
