Cllr Keith Aspden, City of York Council:
“The Good Business Charter will help us ensure that York’s residents have access to the best working conditions, with fairness, representation, diversity and a shared commitment to our environmental responsibilities at the core of our employment standards.
“While it is important that the City of York Council shows its support for the GBC, I am delighted that some of our city’s most prominent employers have also chosen to do so, and look forward to more joining them. Working together, as the first Good Business Charter city, will help us to create a better, fairer and more sustainable future for our community.
“York has always been a pioneering city, and it is great that we are first in the UK to sign up to such an important initiative.”
