The Living Wage Foundation is pleased to announce that ACS&T Logistics is now accredited as a Living Wage employer.

The Living Wage commitment sees employees at ACS&T Logistics receive a minimum consolidated hourly wage of £8.25 - significantly higher than the national minimum wage of £6.70 and the new minimum wage premium for over 25s of £7.20 per hour introduced this April.

The Living Wage is an hourly rate set independently and updated annually. It includes basic earnings plus allowances and guaranteed payments. The Living Wage is calculated according to the basic cost of living using the ‘Minimum Income Standard’ for the UK. Decisions about what to include in this standard are set by the public; it is a social consensus about what people need to make ends meet.

Sarah Hughes, Camellia Group HR Manager said: “We are proud of our achievements and growth, but most of all we are proud of our employees who make everything possible.

“We recognise that every employee provides an integral part to the company, each individual’s contribution is appreciated. It’s therefore only right that we show our commitment, in the same way the team commits to the business and to our customers, by ensuring a wage that supports the cost of living”.

Employers choose to pay the Living Wage on a voluntary basis. The Living Wage enjoys cross party support, with public backing from the Prime Minister and the Leader of the Opposition.

Living Wage Foundation Director, Katherine Chapman said: “We are delighted to welcome ACS&T Logistics to the Living Wage movement as an accredited employer.

“The best employers are voluntarily signing up to pay the Living Wage now. The Living Wage is a robust calculation that reflects the real cost of living, rewarding a hard day’s work with a fair day’s pay.

“We have accredited over 2,300 leading employers, including ACS&T, ranging from independent printers, bookshops and breweries, to well-known companies such as Nationwide, Aviva and SSE. These businesses recognise that clinging to the national minimum wage is not good for business. Customers expect better than that."
