Control over when you work

We need reliable jobs that pay enough to keep up with the cost of living and leave us with enough time to see loved ones.
But millions are stuck in low-paid, insecure work that makes planning their life a nightmare.
Our objectives

We’re calling for:

  • support for the genuinely self-employed while calling for a ban on zero-hours contracts and false self-employment
  • a right to reasonable notice of your shifts, and payment if your shifts are cancelled a move to a shorter working time with no loss of pay, starting with four new bank holidays a year, and setting an ambition for a four-day week
  • a right to positive flexible working from day one of your job, with employers required to advertise all jobs on that basis
  • a decent floor of rights for all workers and the return of protection from unfair dismissal to millions of working people. 

Too often shifts are cancelled or changed with no notice and workers are powerless to do anything about it. 

Work is getting more intense, with workers being asked to do more and more for less and less pay. And old-fashioned management practices hold too many people back. Carers, parents, older workers and disabled people (including those with mental health conditions), need more flexibility at work.
