On a cold Tuesday afternoon, 21st February 2017, nine members of the Living Wage campaign team set off to meet solicitors in CMK who were thought to be paying Living Wage to all staff…but not their cleaners.
The aim was simply to meet the solicitors, give them a letter outlining the benefits of becoming a Living Wage employer…and an enclosed tea bag for a nice cup of tea while reading it!
The action was successful in engaging with nine solicitors, with appointments being made for a series of follow-up discussions over the next two weeks.
“We got a positive result,” said Suresh Nesratnam of The Open University.
“It was good to do something for a good cause,” said Chris Freedland of MK Quaker Meeting.
