Commenting on the launch today (Wednesday) of the Taylor Review of modern employment practices, TUC General Secretary Frances O’Grady said:

Far too many people are now stuck in insecure jobs, with low pay and no voice at work.

“The Taylor review is an opportunity to bring the rules protecting workers into the 21st century, and to improve rights for millions of working people.

“As we have recently seen at Uber and Sports Direct, strong unions are key to exposing bad bosses and winning a better deal for working people.”
