Victory at the MOD – Lucky Friday 13th

Friday 13th is supposed to be unlucky.

But yesterday was exactly the opposite for our members employed by Compass Group at the Ministry of Defence in Whitehall. After months of campaigning, they received the news that Compass will begin paying them the London Living Wage from August 1st 2018.

Apparently, according to Compass, this decision is ‘in line with other Whitehall Government Departments’ – so it looks as though some other government contractors can look forward to a summer pay rise too.

Great news all round!
