Contractors and subcontractors starting on Land Securities construction sites must now pay all their workers at least the Living Wage.

The move follows months of lobbying by union representatives

Construction union Ucatt described the decision by the UK’s largest construction client as a ‘game changer’.

It said that the decision was particularly significant in the capital where large numbers of construction workers are paid just £7.20 an hour compared to the London Living Wage of £9.40 an hour.

Ucatt regional secretary Jerry Swain said “I commend Land Securities for their decision to introduce the Living Wage. In London this will be the difference between workers simply surviving and having sufficient income in order to be able to live.”
