We the undersigned are calling on The Barnet Group (TBG) to implement the London Living Wage as the Minimum Wage For All Barnet Group Employees.
Why is this important?
Since ex-Fremantle care workers transferred into the Barnet Group this year, The Barnet Group now has a large number of employees paid below the London Living Wage (£10.55/ hour). This means that the skilled caring work done by staff is paid at rates lower than those paid to cleaners working in the Council buildings. It is absolutely right that cleaners are paid the London Living Wage but care workers are no less deserving.
The London Living Wage is identified as the hourly rate of pay needed to more realistically cover the real cost of living.
