We are planning to visit lots of local businesses before the end of July to talk about the real Living Wage (£8.25 outside London) and help them sign up to it. Many employers already pay the LW and if they sign up it will encourage others to think about it, and begin to make a real difference to pay rates locally.
Come to a short briefing meeting in central Lewes on Tuesday 5th July at
7.30pm. Ring Linda Lamont on 01273 470940 or email Ann Link
The briefing will identify a list of businesses, especially on the High
Street, that we think may already be sympathetic to the ideas. There
will be a broad "script" to help volunteers introduce themselves. Also
we will be able to offer some information on union membership to
employees if appropriate. Asking businesses to sign up might also lead
to us offering help in registering them on the website.
