7.2 million employees don’t have protection against unfair dismissal because they’ve been in their job less than two years. Labour would give all workers rights and protections from day one, including statutory sick pay, holiday pay, and protection from unfair dismissal.

“These scandalous workplace practices have no place in modern Britain.” ❌ Enough is enough. It’s time for ministers to ban umbrella companies, without delay. Full story 📰👇 https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2021/jul/29/tuc-calls-for-ban-on-use-of-umbrella-companies-to-employ-agency-workers
Incredibly sad news R.I.P Y.N.W.A.
This thread is one of the saddest and most real I have read The world stepped up to fight the covid pandemic yet suicide is a pandemic that is left to charities and small groups We need world mental health support and proper funding My thoughts are for all affected 💔
The Govt's failure to prosecute employers who pay below the minimum wage gives a green light to these despicable practices We need a crack down on rogue employers, & stronger workers' rights & trade unions to give working people the security they deserve https://www.opendemocracy.net/en/dark-money-investigations/only-six-uk-employers-prosecuted-paying-below-minimum-wage-six-years/?utm_source=tw

We couldn't have put it better ourselves! Welcome, Tristan ✊
Maybe if the police and NHS put a bid in for a PPE contract they'd get enough to fund themselves and a decent pay rise For all It's worked for the mates of this government
I spent a day with an Amazon delivery driver to see first hand working conditions in the gig economy Labour will end bogus self-employment to give all workers day one rights & protections to provide the security they deserve with the flexibility they want https://www.independent.co.uk/voices/workers-rights-gig-economy-labour-b1891531.html
Labour's New Deal for Working People: 🔒 security at work by giving workers full rights from day one on the job 💪 stronger trade unions 🏡 right to work flexibly 💷 real living wage of at least £10 an hour, & more workers covered by collectively agreed deals that boost pay
MPs can claim for rent or hotel accommodation as well as expenses for a second home MPs can claim for travel costs MPs are also entitled to food expenses Some MPs have been known to get holidays paid for by others NHS staff pay for parking
It’s quite simply bizarre the way you assume the country has suffered some kind of collective amnesia & can’t remember your party has cut 21,000 Police officers, 23,000 police support staff & closed 600 police stations. Its the very opposite of a party of law & order
We never miss! 📮
Bin workers are to be exempt from Ping isolation, their work considered crucial. In Bexley, Unite refuse workers are having to take strike action as Serco pay them a measly £10.25 phr, less than the London Living Wage. If the work is critical then pay a decent wage.
The crisis in retail and hospitality is a crisis of low pay - if we value workers and pay them fairly instead of ripping them off there will be no problems
There would be plenty of people to distribute this food if employers paid a decent wage. Bad employers have relied for to long on paying low wages and many experienced drivers have gone elsewhere. They took away job security and decent pay and are now paying for it.

The irony Calling a known liar out, who had lied to Parliament, is more disrespectful than the person who actually tells the lies
I wonder if @GavinWilliamson & @BorisJohnson have a clue about the extraordinary dedication, effort & hours of extra work teachers & education staff have given our children & young people during this pandemic Freezing their pay is insulting, unfair & unacceptable @NEUnion
Breaking: Courageous Labour MP @DawnButlerBrent has just been told to leave the Chamber by Deputy Speaker for raising my film which public have sent to 27 MILLION VIEWS in protest at Prime Ministers rampant lying in Parliament & calling PM a lier Thank you for your courage Dawn
🚨 It’s been exposed by the @GMB_union NHS staff in England have lost up to £9,000 a year, after a decade of Conservative real-term pay cuts. We all clapped on our doorsteps for #NHS workers. It’s time we thanked them properly. #NHSPay15 https://www.rcn.org.uk/magazines/News/uk-nhs-pay-deal-a-bitter-blow-to-nursing-staff-in-england-210721
Parliamentary Standards & ethics have never been lower and yet apathy rules supreme, how can people allow single issue politics to supercede sleeze, integrity & corruption when it comes to elections
The heat over the last couple of days has been unbearable. Posties are massively struggling. Please give them a shout if you see them and if you can offer them a drink (Covid secure) we are sure that would be massively appreciated 👍
Pizza Express fired 1,300 members of staff rather than keeping them on furlough, and recently cut the share of tips its waiting staff receive. Actions speak louder than words.
The union has won 'vital breathing space' in the fight to save the Crown Post Office network. Closures have been suspended for the rest of 2021, with talks planned to agree upon long-term strategies. Read more here: https://loom.ly/r11G0Pk #CWU #union #postoffice
Just heard @spectator are planning to run a story on me tomorrow about how I have benefitted commercially in the last 18 months…To clarify, I don’t need to partner with brands. I partner because I want to progress the work I do off the pitch and…(1)
We can't 'afford' to give people proper sick pay but we can afford to waste billions on a dysfunctional test and trace system.
