Conclusion

Millions of workers and their families face uncertainty, stress and poverty due to insecure work.

Tackling this must sit at the top of the incoming Prime Minister’s to-do list.

But it can’t be done without a commitment to trade union involvement in the workplace and beyond.

And commitment to a robust set of individual, enforceable employment rights that ensures bad employers cannot get away with poor behaviour.
