Employee Rights Stop Employment Wrongs

TUC launches employment rights campaign with six foot clock and workers in Victorian costume

TUC General Secretary Brendan Barber poses with a six foot clock with a backwards face and workers in Victorian costume (a chambermaid, a tradesman and a child chimney sweep) to launch a new employment rights campaign – Employee Rights Stop Employment Wrongs.

More than three million people working in small companies with fewer than 10 staff will be turned into second-class citizens if government supporters of the Beecroft report get their way.

The TUC believes that the Beecroft proposals would turn employees in small businesses into second-class citizens by stripping them of many rights. His original report called for staff in small firms to lose unfair dismissal, pension, flexible working, parental leave, gangmaster and equal pay rights.

The TUC argues that the very many good employers in small firms who have no interest in treating their staff badly will suffer unfairly from being seen as second-class, second-rate employers. The TUC message is don’t turn the clock back on workplace rights.

Flashmob placards

Mini placards for the City Hall Flashmob organised by the “I’m a Photographer Not a Terrorist!” campaign. London.

Flashmob City Hall

22 April 2011

Tuesday 3rd May, World Press Freedom Day, at City Hall, London SE1 2AA at 12:30.

I’m a Photographer, Not a Terrorist! (PHNAT), the campaign group set up to fight unnecessary and draconian restrictions against individuals taking photographs in public spaces, is organising a flashmob outside London’s City Hall.

The event takes place on International Press Freedom Day and is supported by the National Union of Journalists (NUJ) London Photographers’ Branch (LPB).

PHNAT is concerned about the role of private security guards in the prevention of terrorism. Their role has been promoted by police, with the result that many privately employed guards are illegally preventing citizens from taking any photographs at all.

Areas designated as public realm are often privately managed spaces that are subject to rules laid down by the private management companies. Most insidious of these is the outright banning of photography in some of our most widely enjoyed public spaces, such as Canary Wharf and the Thames Walk between Tower Bridge and City Hall.

The mass gathering will highlight the restrictions on street photography in a public space. Photographers are encouraged to bring a tripod.

An illustrated PHNAT pamphlet will also be launched at the event. Created by PHNAT and LPB members, supported by the NUJ, British Press Photographers Association (BPPA) and the Campaign for Press and Broadcasting Freedom, it will celebrate the history of the PHNAT campaign.
