Newcastle University to pay the Living Wage

Newcastle University to pay the Living Wage

Newcastle University to become a fully accredited Living Wage employer.

Why is this important?

Research from 2017 at Cardiff University suggested that 60% of British people in poverty live in a household where someone is in work. This simply has to change.
We are calling on the Vice Chancellor to follow suit of many other Universities, and pay staff a reasonable amount. For a university that earned a £27 million surplus before tax in 2016-17, this is the least it can do.
