Headline: Progress made on living wage discussion in Lower Hutt

“While there is still a lot of work to be done, including getting our own independent legal advice, having agreement in principle to the living wage is a signal to the Living Wage – Hutt Valley Group that we want to work collaboratively with them.”

Mayor Ray Wallace recommended council:

  • Agrees in principle to the living wage;
  • Instructs the chief executive to produce a draft remuneration and employment policy under the Local Government Act 2002 that addresses paying the living wage to council employees, for consideration by council by 1 July 2017; 
  • Requests that the chief executive continues to work with the Living Wage – Hutt Valley Group to investigate how council contractors can apply the living wage to workers and reports back to council by 1 July 2017.
