Ban zero-hours contracts

Reason for signing

  • Insecure jobs, epitomised by zero hours contracts, are ALL exploitative and should be banned. They are proven to mean lower pay, mental stress, denial of loans and mortgages, total life instability. We should instead demand a legally guaranteed minimum 16-Hours contract for all workers who want it - to give a more stable income, qualify for Tax Credits and statutory sick pay, etc. That's what my union USDAW is campaigning for
