Leader of the Labour Party Backs Our Living Wage Campaign

Posted on Updated on

Ed Miliband, the Leader of the Labour Party, has backed our campaigning in two articles in national newspapers, in The Guardian and in The Independent .

Ed has commented on the Premier League, as have our campaign colleagues David Lammy MP and Frank Field MP. We welcome this, as generally they are the clubs spending the most on players pay.

But as Labour Football followers will be aware, our campaign has gone for ALL professional clubs in the English Premier League, English Football League, Scottish Premier League and selected clubs in the second tier of Scottish football.

We will be using the fact that Luton, Hearts, Celtic and Chelsea have made public announcements on the living wage.

We know from our campaigning that other clubs are actively considering it.

We ask them to follow the examples of these other clubs and get in touch with us.
And we ask you to join with us in our campaign!
