Barnet Council: London Living Wage is NOW £11.95
Barnet Council includes the London Living Wage as a contract clause for some of the contractors that deliver services on behalf of Barnet Council e.g. Norse (cleaning contractor) ISS (catering in schools), Blue Nine (security services).
“The new Living Wage rates were announced on Thursday 22nd September 2022. Employers should implement the rise as soon as possible but by the latest 14th May 2023.”
Our members working for Norse, ISS, Blue Nine are currently earning £11.05 an hour.
The new rate is £11.95 and hour.
The worst Cost-of-Living Crisis in 75 years is having a disproportionate impact on the lowest paid which is why Barnet UNISON has called on Barnet Council to ask their contractors to update the London Living Wage for their staff before Christmas.
The Office for National Statistics (ONS) shows RPI was 19.9% at the end of October (see graph below).
