Proest at Debenhams: Pay the Living Wage

  • Debenhams 334-338 Oxford Street London (map)


UVW have written to Debenhams, the multinational retailer, to demand the London Living Wage for our trade union members at the Flagship store in Oxford Street. Debenhams is a scrooge employer that thrives off poverty wages (whilst paying the CEO £1 million a year and earning £90 million in pre tax profits in the 26 weeks to February 2015) so they will not give in without a fight. Taking on retailers like Debenahams is no easy task. In fact, not a single high street retailer pays the Living Wage so we will need all the support we can get. Please get in touch if you would like to help us out and please spread the word! Together we can win! 

Here's Debenhams' promo video for the £25 million they spent on doing up their Flagship store where they pay the minimum wage of £6.50 per hour, not just to the cleaners but to pretty much all their employes:
