Unite General Secretary candidate Jerry Hicks was the first to respond to the call from the Just Wage Campaign and was supportive. Mr. Hicks has contacted us and when his written response comes through it will be posted here. As many members may know, he has a previous commitment to an even fairer wage than 1:5 - as his campaign literature says, If elected Jerry Hicks would only take the average wage of a skilled worker.
We wonder if any other candidate will top this?
