Just Wage Forum 2021 | Just Wage Reflects Participation by Workers (Virtual)

Friday, June 11, 2021 - 1:00pm to 2:30pm

The Just Wage Forum 2021 is a series of conversations between scholars and practitioners on the Just Wage Framework & Online Tool. 

  • What makes any given wage just or unjust?
  • What are the rights, responsibilities, and roles of employers, workers, government, unions, community groups, and the public more generally in securing safe, decent-paying jobs and economic opportunities?
  • What are the best ways to tackle the persistence of structural discrimination and increasing economic inequality?

On select Fridays through July 2021, join us for Zoom webinars featuring a diversity of perspectives. 

Criterion 6: Participation

A just wage -- as well as a wider just wage structure -- is best determined by negotiation via union recognition, collective bargaining, and regular contracts. In the absence of collective bargaining, a just wage can be encouraged by standardized guidelines featuring due process procedures in wage negotiations and disputes, as well as input via bodies chosen by the workers themselves (staff councils, advisory bodies, etc.). Regardless of union recognition, a just wage structure should include representation of workers in leadership positions (such as boards of directors) and opportunities for co-ownership (via stock options, e.g.).
