Parity Of Terms And Conditions In The Public Sector

EDM number 856 in 2014-15, proposed by Liz McInnes on 10/03/2015.
Categorised under the topics of Employment, Industrial relations and Pay.

That this House notes with concern that some outsourced providers of public sector contracts are failing to pay their employees on the same terms and conditions as those carrying out the same work directly for the public sector; believes that all employees carrying out public sector work should have parity of pay and conditions whether employed directly or by an outsourced employer; further notes that some private sector contractors are failing to pay the living wage to their employees; further notes that employment terms and conditions drive low pay and that low pay contributes to poverty in the UK; and calls on the Government to ensure all public sector contracts which are outsourced to private sector providers include measures to ensure that workers are given parity of terms and conditions with workers carrying out the same or similar work directly for the public sector.

This motion has been signed by a total of 45 MPs.
