For four years unions, faith groups, community organisations and unions in the Living Wage Movement have campaigned for the Living Wage at Wellington City Council.  We’ve had some big wins and WCC has taken some big steps forward.

Now we’re preparing to celebrate.

On 28 June Wellington City Council will vote on taking another major step:

The full NZ Living Wage rate of 420.20 for all directly employed workers and all those employed in CCOs by 1 July

The full NZ Living Wage rate for Council’s Spotless cleaners and Recon security workers by 1 July.

Lifting other contracted workers to the full NZ Living Wage rate as the next step.

We are confident this has the support of Council.  Join others from the Living Wage Movement to thank the Mayor and councilors for their support of the Living Wage and celebrate our victory.

12noon – 12.30pm, Thursday 29 June
