It’s decision time on corporate pay. Right now, big shareholders like your pension fund are voting on massive bonus pay-outs at company meetings (AGMs).
Despite rocketing pay for bosses at the top of big companies, most do not pay the basic Living Wage to their workers. This pay gap leaves millions of workers below the poverty line and deepens inequality in the UK.
But shareholders, including our pension funds, have the power to fix this. They just need to be willing to use their votes to say ‘NO’ to excessive pay at the top and poverty pay at the bottom.
If our pension funds hear from you and other savers now, we can demand that they change decisions on pay as they happen. Can you send a quick email to your pension fund now demanding action on pay?
