Just Wage - Summary of Campaign 1

In 2010, the UK's biggest trades union UNITE held elections for the post of General Secretary - their most senior elected officer. We asked the candidates in this elections to commit to:
1. a just wage within their organisations and
2. support for a campaign for just wage ratios in the sectors where the union organises (eg. nonprofit, public and private)

This blog kept track of the progress of the campaign, provide information about the reasons for the campaign and case studies of unjust pay gaps and salaries in the UK.

We also collected signatories for the campaign.

To find out more about the reasons for the campaign, please read the FAQ.

If you would like to publicly support us as a trade union member, shop steward or organisation or even as an individual, email us at justDOTwage AT googlemailDOTcom.
