Living Wage Movement Aotearoa New Zealand brings together community/secular, union and faith-based groups to campaign for a Living Wage.
We uphold four key principles, including that the Living Wage Movement is:
- non-party political
- built locally through local relationships and local issues
- independent of government in terms of funding and association
- comprised of three streams of the membership: secular/community, union, faith-based groups.
We also have an accreditation system available for employers, who meet the criteria to become a Living Wage Employer.
This is a trademark and cannot be used unless a licence has been signed committing the business to pay no less than the Living Wage to directly employed and contracted workers, delivering services on a regular and ongoing basis.
