Redbridge Council to adopt London living wage

Redbridge Council will adopt the new “living wage” for London of £8.80, and schools will be urged to so the same.

The London Living Wage (LLW), which is not binding to employees, was increased last month by 25 per cent.

Councillor Ian Bond (Lib Dem, Roding) said during Tuesday’s cabinet meeting in Redbridge Town Hall, High Road, Ilford: “Following consultation we are asking workers to adopt the London Living Wage – we will be encouraging our schools to adopt the wage too.”

The report, agreed by the cabinet, proposed that the LLW will be implemented from April 1 2014.
