TUC General Secretary Frances O’Grady said:
"Ministers should ensure that workers can secure the hours of work they want and need.
"But this is tinkering around the edges. Widening the ban on exclusivity clauses alone isn't nearly enough to assist low-paid and insecure workers.
"The government must bring forward its long-awaited employment bill as quickly as possible.
"The bill must include giving workers a right to a contract reflecting their normal hours of work, and robust rules governing notice of shifts and compensation for cancelled shifts."
