Question 10 – Living Wage

Does the bank pay a living wage to all staff? What are the workers’ pay and conditions like more generally?

Barclays, HSBC and Lloyds, along with the Co-operative Bank, are committed to paying the official Living Wage to all their own staff. This followed several years of campaigning by Share Action. However, they have not ensured that all staff in agencies or contracted out services are paid the living wage.

Share Action may be able to provide more information on pay and conditions. You may also wish to contact unions that represent bank staff. Several unions are involved; many bank workers belong to Unite.
