The IWGB has had confirmation from the University of London that all staff, in-house and contracted, will receive at least the new London Living Wage of £9.75 an hour.
The increase will be effective from 1 November, and marks a rise of 35p per hour from the previous £9.40 rate – an increase of about 3.7%.
The IWGB is pressing to have this increase also applied to supervisory staff, to ensure that differentials are maintained.
We are determined to continue to fight for improvements in the terms and conditions for the most vulnerable staff at the University – please do get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org if you are not being paid the LLW, or if you have any other questions.
We will also be pressurising other nearby Universities to ensure they follow suit.
