Government’s workers rights proposals do nothing to tackle the growing number of people on zero hours contracts – Long Bailey

Rebecca Long Bailey MP, Labour’s Shadow Business Secretary, commenting on the Government’s workers rights proposals, said:

“This Conservative Government has failed to support workers. Instead it has increased tribunal fees, attacked the health and safety of workers, introduced the draconian Trade Union Act and presided over the lowest wage growth in a decade.

“These proposals do nothing to tackle the growing number of people on precarious zero hours contracts and with their botched Brexit deal threatening jobs and rights they’ll have to do a lot more than this to reassure workers.”
