Overview

There are over 1.8 million zero-hours contracts in the UK today. These contracts represent a licence to treat people like disposable labour, where all the risk is placed firmly in the workers' hands, often resulting in a precarious and insecure existence.

As part of HeartUnions week we are hosting a webinar with STUC’s Better Than Zero. Better Than Zero are a group of workers, who, since 2015, have been organising against precarious work in the hospitality and service sectors in Scotland.  They campaign against zero-hours, zero-rights, and zero-respect in the workplace. 

Join this webinar to learn about

  • experiences of those employed on zero-hours contracts
  • how reps and unions can support workers and members to take collective action for better terms and conditions
  • how we can stamp out zero-hours contracts
