After months of uncertainty and pressure from the IWGB the management of Heythrop College and Kingdom, the outsourcing company contracted out by the college to provide cleaning services, has finally confirmed that workers will be paid the London living wage of £10.20 per hour.
The pay increase, which is effective immediately, will be backdated to November 2017. This means the increase will be in the next pay period as detailed in this email sent to IWGB by Heythrop’s director of finance and estates:
Please be assured that Kingdom have been instructed to implement the London Living Wage for all their employees working on the College site and to backdate this increase to November 2017. I have requested that this change be implemented in time for their next pay period.
Director of Finance and Estates
Hasta la Victoria!
