Commenting on a new Flexible Working Bill that is being presented by Tulip Siddique MP today (Wednesday), TUC General Secretary Frances O’Grady said:  

“As we emerge from the pandemic, lots of workers will want to work more flexibly to help them do their job and manage their other responsibilities too.   

“Flexible working isn’t just about working at home. It can mean having predictable or fixed hours, working as a job-share, or working flexitime, term-time only hours or compressed hours.  

“No one should miss out on flexible working options. Government must bring in a new right to flexible working for every worker, in every job.” 

Editors note

- The Flexible Working Bill is co-sponsored by MPs from the Conservative, Labour, Lib Dem, Green, SDLP and SNP parties, and would give all workers a right to flexible working from the first day in a job and ensure that employers advertise flexibility in job adverts. 
- For more information about the Bill or case studies about flexible working requests being rejected, please contact Liam Taggart at or on 07796 678228. 

- The Trades Union Congress (TUC) exists to make the working world a better place for everyone. We bring together the 5.5 million working people who make up our 48 member unions. We support unions to grow and thrive, and we stand up for everyone who works for a living.
