Ban zero-hours contracts

Reason for signing

  • My forced its employees to sign a contract reducing our annual working weeks from 52 to 50 and sometimes as few as 48 and as a result one of my coworkers has been forced into appealing for Jobseeker's Allowance, because he's out around £500 a year. I hope once we ban zero hour contracts we can find a way to ban amendments to our contracts which reduce our working weeks against our will and protect everybody's rights. If we stand together we've more of a chance at succeeding. Thanks! -Naomi
