Right to Fair Work
In work poverty

The UK must become a Fair Work Nation where security, opportunity, fulfilment, respect and effective voice at work are a reality for every worker in every workplace.

To achieve this, the UK Government must:

  • End zero hours contracts, umbrella contracts and bogus self-employment.

  • Immediately introduce a £10 per hour minimum wage rate.

  • Make all employment rights legally enforceable from day one.

  • Expand collective bargaining coverage.

  • Enshrine a right of access for Trade Unions in all workplaces.

  • Repeal all Anti-Trade Union Legislation.

And to tackle inequality the UK Government must:

  • Eradicate youth differentials in the minimum wage with young workers paid the full adult rate.

  • Eradicate the disability employment and pay gap and ensure 10% of all apprenticeships go to disabled workers.

  • Eradicate the gender pay gap and value the skills of women, establishing sectoral bargaining in sectors where women are systematically undervalued and work in high skilled jobs for low pay like social care and childcare.

  • Create a zero-tolerance approach to racism, homophobia, transphobia and other forms of discrimination and harassment in the workplace.
