Support for Living Wage at Dundee University

I support the efforts being made by Dundee Labour Students to get all employees of the University of Dundee paid the Living Wage.  I campaigned for Dundee City Council to pay the Living Wage, and I believe that it should be paid right across the public sector.


I am more than happy to support this campaign by Dundee Labour Students to get the Living Wage paid at Dundee University. I strongly supported the moves which made the City Council pay the Living Wage and I believe that everyone in the public sector should be paid the Living Wage. As the local councillor for the university, and indeed as a graduate of the university, I will be writing to the Principal of the University setting out my support for the campaign and asking that he give serious consideration to implementing it.
