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.

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 Fair Work Charter will be developed in the coming months by a dedicated steering group of stakeholders and in consultation with partners and employers. The group will develop the criteria for membership of the West Yorkshire Charter to ensure suitability for all types of employers in the region including SMEs across all sectors and third sector organisations.

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.
