TUC: Every worker deserves the right to guaranteed hours

617,000 people working less than 16 hours want more hours

Commenting on the publication of the Living Wage Foundation’s report calling for guaranteed minimum of 16 hours per week for workers that want them, TUC General Secretary Frances O’Grady yesterday said:

“Everyone should have the right to guaranteed hours. But many workers are kept on a string – not knowing how much work they’ll have from one week to the next.

“This can make planning your life and making ends meet a nightmare.

“It’s time to end this limbo and give people fair notice of their hours and compensation if their shifts are cancelled.

“We welcome the launch of this new standard for living hours.”
