Closing the gap: What is still standing in the way of brands implementing living wage policies

Clock icon 13:30 - 13:30
Raising wages to ‘living’ standards is a difficult process for brands to be implementing individually. If done collaboratively with relevant brands, retailers, manufacturers and trade unions, systems can be scaled far more effectively. This session will take an in-depth look at organisations such as ACT (Action, Collaboration, Transformation) that have been set up to improve wages through collective bargaining, better manufacturing standards and responsible purchasing practices. We will also be looking at what hasn’t worked and what is still needed from brands to truly implement living wage policies.
