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.
