Welsh Government is committed to ensuring all workers in Wales are treated fairly and with respect. Leading by example, Welsh Government was accredited as a Living Wage employer in 2015, seeing over 3000 staff uplifted to the Living Wage.
In 2017, as part of a wider Code of Practice on Ethical Employment in Supply Chains, it launched a guide to implementing the Living Wage in public sector supply chains and, in 2018, tasked the Fair Work Commission to make evidence based recommendations to promote and encourage fair work in Wales.
May 2019 saw the publication of the Fair Work Commission’s report, stating that the real Living Wage should provide ‘the minimum wage floor for all working hours’ as part of the definition of ‘Fair Reward’, a key element of Fair Work.
The Report also concluded that public sector bodies should be actively and visibly fair work employers, that social partnership working is central to delivering fair work and that a range of recommendations be delivered to advance fair work.
Those recommendations are being taken forward, including the recent consultation on the Draft Social Partnerships and Public Procurement (Wales) Bill and a pledge to ensure social care workers across Wales are paid a real Living Wage.
WELSH GOVERNMENT WAS ACCREDITED AS A LIVING WAGE EMPLOYER IN 2015, SEEING OVER 3000 STAFF UPLIFTED TO THE LIVING WAGE.
To make Wales a Living Wage nation, we need a Leadership Group that represents different regions and industries in Wales.

Living Wage City Steering group
Cardiff has been recognised as a Living Wage City as part of the ‘Making Living Wage Places’ scheme. A group of prominent Cardiff employers joined forces to form the Cardiff Living Wage Action Group and launched their three year action plan to begin ‘Making Cardiff a Living Wage City’.
