Unions pledge to ban zero-hours contracts
There are over 1.8 million zero hours contracts in the UK today. These contracts represent a licence to treat people like disposable labour, where all the risk is placed firmly in the workers hands’, often resulting in a precarious and insecure existence.
Since 2015, Better Than Zero has been campaigning against zero hours, zero rights, and zero respect in the workplace. They support workers to take collective action through their trade union to fight for better terms and conditions.
As part of HeartUnions week we are hosting a webinar with STUC’s Better Than Zero to find out how they have been organising against precarious work in the hospitality and service sectors in Scotland. Sign up to learn what unions and reps can do to eradicate these contracts.
