To consider the following motion of which due notice has been given in accordance with Paragraph 12.1 of the Council Procedure Rules:-

"Scarborough Borough is the low pay capital of Great Britain - a fact we should all be ashamed of.  Despite inward investment and the promise of Potash and Offshore industries we have the lowest median employee salary in the U.K. at £19,925.  The Great Britain figure is £28,442.  We call on Scarborough Borough Council to improve this damning state of affairs by taking the lead locally and:-

 

1) Paying at least the Living Wage Foundation rate to all employees

2) Working collaboratively with all existing suppliers and contractors to the council to encourage them also to pay at least the Living Wage Foundation rate

3) Working to ensure that SBC procurement and commissioning expenditure, is where possible, made in the Borough with businesses paying at least the Living Wage Foundation rate."

 

Proposer: Councillor Liz Colling

Seconder: Councillor Steve Siddons
