Workplace Law unveils ‘Yes’ banner in support of fairer votes

On Thursday 3 March 2011 Workplace Law unveiled a giant 10m banner across the front of its Cambridge offices on Hills Road in support of the ’Yes to Fairer Votes’ campaign.

 

As the first non-political, non-electoral organisation in the UK to join the ‘Yes’ campaign as a corporate supporter, the company felt it was important to visibly show their support.

 

Staff and campaigners dressed in purple turned out to say ‘yes’ and share the message with passers-by.

 

In a media briefing Managing Director David Sharp said: “There is no point in a company like Workplace Law existing if we don’t stand up for something when we think it’s right, or stand against something when we think it’s wrong.

 

“Workplace Law is a business that looks to the future, not the past. What we as a business are saying is that, when it comes down to changing a ballot slip from a simple ‘x’ to a ranked ‘1,2, 3 etc.’ then we think in the 21st century this is just so obviously a sensible change in the electoral process that we should support it.”

 

During the event David was interviewed by BBC’s Andrew Sinclair, discussing why the company is supporting the campaign.
