Kia ora Living Wage supporters
It’s been a great year for our local Living Wage Network. We will meet 5.30-7.30pm Wednesday, 20 November at Hutt Union and Community Health Service, 51 Farmer Crescent, to celebrate and make plans for another successful year in 2020.Councillor Josh Briggs will attend our meeting and update us on the new Hutt City Council’s plans for the Living Wage.
Here are some of the highlights of the year:
- Seashore Cabaret became New Zealand’s biggest Living Wage employer in the hospitality sector.
- Hutt City Council voted to lift the contracted cleaners from the minimum wage to the Living Wage.
- We organised over 100 people to our election forum and secured public commitments to the Living Wage from nearly 20 candidates.
- A clear majority of the new Hutt City Council have committed to becoming a fully-accredited Living Wage Council, including the new Mayor and Deputy Mayor
