IKEA’s decision to continue as Living Wage employer welcomed

IKEA’s decision to continue its commitment to being a Living Wage employer has been welcomed by the Usdaw trade union.

The furniture and homewares retailer will pay its staff at least £10.85 an hour in London and £9.50 in the rest of the country following The Living Wage Foundation’s announcement of new rates last November.  Accredited businesses were given six months to implement the increase.

Dave Gill, Usdaw national officer, said: “Usdaw has been in discussions with IKEA about them continuing to be a Living Wage employer and implementing the latest increase. So our members are pleased to hear today that the company has agreed to pay the new Living Wage from May. They remain one of a few retail employers who pay the real Living Wage.

“While we welcomed the latest increase in Living Wage rates, Usdaw continues to campaign for a New Deal for Workers with a minimum wage of at least £10 per hour and an end to insecure employment. Living Wage employers like IKEA are leading the way, but we need the Government to go much further.”
