The London Living Wage Foundation is encouraging employers to introduce its new ‘living wage’ rates of £9 an hour across the country and £10.55 in London immediately.

Below, Danny Millum requests confirmation from Simon Cain, the University of London’s director of HR services, that the institution’s low-paid workers will benefit from the increase.


Dear Simon

I am writing on behalf of outsourced workers at the University of London following the recent announcement of the London Living Wage uplift to £10.55 per hour.
I just wanted to confirm that this rate would be introduced for all affected staff from the start of November as in previous years.
Obviously this is matter of pressing urgency for these low-paid workers, and so I would appreciate if you could get back to me as soon as possible.
Best wishes
Danny Millum
