The Greater Manchester Living Wage Campaign is now officially a supporter of the Salford City Mayor’s Employment Charter!
The charter contains a suite of pledges, focused in three categories:
- Putting Salford first: creating training and employment opportunities for Salford people, particularly those facing greatest disadvantage
- Buying in Salford: looking to purchase Salford goods and services at every practicable opportunity
- Setting the standard: promoting the adoption of the best possible working practices and conditions, such as working towards the introduction of a living wage, a commitment to eradicating the illegal practice of blacklisting and opposing the use of zero-hour contracts
We are delighted to work with Salford City Council in promoting the Living Wage across Salford and across Greater Manchester. You can read more about the Charter, and sign up, here.
