Ban zero-hours contracts

We need an outright ban on zero-hours contracts.

Too many workers are being denied job security and can miss out on sick pay. Insecure work is out of control.

Why is this important?

Every worker should have the right to a contract that guarantees the hours they work and the conditions they need for a decent working life.

Too often zero-hours contracts are being used to exploit workers. Hours are never guaranteed, making financial planning impossible and anxiety inevitable.

If ministers are serious about building a country that works for everyone, they must act now to ensure every worker gets fair pay, decent rights and a voice at work.


Reasons for signing

  • Because I had bad experiences with these ridiculous zero hour contracts. People need to have the same hours every week to pay there expenses it's common sense. Sadly common sense is not very common at the moment.
  • I work for dominos and my manager is not very fair wit the hours he gives me he can give me four hour ma a week or none and I wanted a job to earn money not worry how much I’m gonna work and get paid
  • I work on a zero hour contract, I practically have no hours as it is and have just had them cut further, I have kids to feed and a house to run..
