A fair pay for a fair day's work: The Living Wage and AGM Activism
Wed 22 March 2017, 17:00 – 19:30 GMT
Imagine yourself sipping tea and chatting to the CEO of Rolls Royce, M&S or EasyJet. What would you say?
We want to get you to the annual meetings of the UK’s biggest corporations to hold the boards to account on the way they pay their employees! Are you up for it? Are you up for that cup of tea? Then come to the first meeting of ShareAction's Good Work team!
“Our people are our greatest asset” is a phrase commonly used by business leaders across the globe. But this asset is neglected far too often! Poor quality and precarious jobs remain prevalent in Britain and around the world. A fair day’s work deserves a fair day’s pay. Here at ShareAction, we believe that Britain's biggest companies should take the lead and commit to ensuring all their staff earn enough to get by.
This year we plan to ramp up the pressure this AGM season to push all companies in the FTSE 100 to pay their staff a fair wage. Wanna help us achieve this goal? Come to the first meeting of ShareAction's Good Work team!
It doesn't matter if you aren't a financial expert or don't own any shares - we will sort this out!
When? 22nd of March 2017, from 5pm to 7.30pm
Where? UNISON office, Euston Road
Why? Because you have the power to make a change and convince Britain's biggest companies to pay their employees a living wage - why waste it?
Any questions? Drop Jeanne a line on firstname.lastname@example.org - she will be super happy to answer any questions you may have.
See you there!
Ps: We will have pizza!
