Bill Esterson MP signs letter to M&S

Bill2.jpgLabour's Bill Esterson was one of 70 MPs who signed a letter sent to M&S boss Steve Rowe calling for the company to not cut employees pay to offset the National Living Wage.

 

The campaign, which aims at ensuring fairness in implementing a National Living Wage, has seen some positive changes since Labour MP Siobhain McDonagh named and shamed M&S during Prime Minister's questions in June. 

However, the company have not yet addressed the affect on employees pensions and are still implementing a pay freeze. This would mean an employee currently working for the chain would have to work more hours for the same pay in 2019.

Bill Esterson MP said "I have heard from constituents directly affected by these contract changes. The fact loyal and hardworking staff will earn no more money in three years time then they do today is not acceptable. Travel fares, food, rent and bills will all surely increase; indeed, Steve Rowe's announcement that he would not himself take a pay freeze, nor impose one on board members attests to this. 


As a Labour MP I believe there should not be one rule for the privileged few and another for the rest of us."
