Statement to Cabinet – 7th April 2015
We the under-signed wish to express our disappointment at the lack of commitment expressed in the paper on Living Wage accreditation which is before Cabinet.
Bristol City Council is in a unique position to shape local employment opportunities, but to do so requires leadership.
If Bristol City Council is genuinely committed to creating a more equitable labour market in this City, it should, as a bare minimum, commit to the incorporation of the Living Wage as a criteria for all future contracts awarded by the Authority.
