National Express was the first UK private transport group to become an accredited Living Wage Foundation employer. The pledge has benefitted hundreds of workers across our UK Bus and Coach businesses. Outside of the UK we guarantee to pay rates of 10% above national minimum wage pay.
Our UK bus business led the way and was the first to be an accredited Living Wage employer in January 2016. The rest the UK Group businesses, including National Express UK Coach, achieved accreditation in 2018
The company’s pledge to ensure that all members of staff earn a real Living Wage was welcomed by senior politicians.
Tess Lanning, Director of the Living Wage Foundation, said: “We’re delighted that National Express is extending its Living Wage commitment to include all of the UK Group businesses, including National Express UK Coach. Responsible businesses know that the government minimum is not enough to live on. Employers, like National Express, that pay the real Living Wage enable their workers to live a life of dignity, supporting them to pay off debts and meet the pressures of rising bills.”
