The GMB’s accusation is disappointing, surprising and, quite frankly, wrong. We have not asked our partners Carillion to reduce the hours of its employees.
We have successfully implemented the Living Wage ahead of our deadline which means all our employees now receive the uplifted wage – this includes our valued temporary workers and day rate contractors.
We are proud of the role we continue to play in championing fair pay and encouraging other businesses which can afford to do so to pay the Living Wage which is more than the Government’s new Living Wage which was introduced in April. More than 1,500 people have positively benefitted from our decision to introduce the Living Wage, many of whom are employed by companies within our supply chain including employees who provide cleaning services.
