Fair Work Charter

The Fair Work Charter for West Yorkshire is a joint venture between the Mayor, partners, key stakeholders and businesses to develop a way of setting a clear and ambitious standard for fair work in our region.

Public consultation on the Fair Work Charter is live, please visit our Your Voice website to have your say.

The Charter is dedicated to genuine levelling-up across West Yorkshire - encouraging good pay, fair and flexible working conditions, and promoting diversity and social mobility within the workforce.

The consultation will seek views and feedback from as many perspectives as possible, including stakeholders, employers, employees, and wider communities. This will ensure the Charter is relevant and meaningful to the widest range of employers across our region, from micro businesses with just a few employees, to large corporate organisations, employing hundreds, or thousands of workers.

The Charter will ensure maximum alignment across the north building on existing regional models in both Greater Manchester and Liverpool City Region, and where appropriate with local initiatives.
