Zero Hours Contracts

EDM number 452 in 2013-14, proposed by Jim McGovern on 29/08/2013.
Categorised under the topics of Employment and Industrial relations.

That this House calls on the Government to ensure that workers' rights are protected and that a race to the bottom is avoided; notes with great concern the large number of workers in all sectors employed on zero hour contracts; further notes that, while this flexibility can suit some workers, on the whole it undermines employment, financial and family stability and raises grave doubts about employers' commitment to the welfare of their employees; urges employers to invest in a stable and secure workforce whose skills and aspirations are recognised and encouraged through longer term contracts, training and proper observation of workplace rights.

This motion has been signed by a total of 41 MPs.
