Racial inequalities in health and social care workplaces
Outsourcing and casualisation allows end employers to outsource their employment responsibilities, leaving workers with minimal employment rights and security and undermining existing rights and terms and conditions. Such workers cannot challenge the end employer for any employment rights abuses. This restricts outsourced Black and ethnic minority (BME) workers and their unions’ ability to negotiate and bargain collectively, and challenge discrimination and unsafe working conditions where they occur.
This unsustainable and highly exploitative model of public service delivery must end.
