Co-sign our letter to Manchester United: pay a Living Wage

Please co-sign the letter from Manchester Citizens to Ed Woodward, Executive Vice Chairman, Manchester United. Scroll down and add your name. 


Dear Ed,

We are writing as representatives of the community - including individual members and institutions of Manchester Citizens, as well as local people, and some of your club’s official supporter organisations from around the UK - to request a meeting with you to discuss how we can work together to see Manchester United FC become a real Living Wage employer.

We’re asking you to do the right thing on behalf of the lowest paid staff at Manchester United football club, who have told us of their struggles on low pay in a time when football players are receiving a king’s ransom in wages every week.

We’re co-signing this letter as supporters of Manchester Citizens campaign on Premier League low pay. The action is part of Citizen’s UK’s wider national campaign encouraging both Manchester clubs and all clubs in the Premiership to pay a living wage...
